Verify the identity: `sin(t)csc(pi/2-t)=tan(t)`

Simplify the left side of the equation by using the cofunction identity

csc((pi/2)-t)=sec(t).

`sin(t)sec(t)=tan(t)`

Simplify the left side of the equation by using the reciprocal identity

sec(t)=1/cos(t).

`sin(t)*1/cos(t)=tan(t)`

`sin(t)/cos(t)=tan(t)`

`tan(t)=tan(t)`
