Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you don't know how to use trig functions (sin, cos, tan, etc...)? I can link you to some good videos if you want.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1http://www.khanacademy.org/math/trigonometry/v/basictrigonometry Start there and click "next video" for as long as you need to. This is the very beginning of the trigonometry playlist, and this guy explains things really well. You can go to the main site to see a bunch of other vids on a ton of other topics (there's geometry in there too). I think after watching the first one you'll remember what your teacher said in class, so: cosecant x = csc x = 1/sin x secant x = sec x = 1/cos x cotangent x = cot x = 1/tan x I dunno when he introduces those ideas. Very simple though when you know what sine, cosine, and tangent are though. Good luck on your final!
