    \[\tan \theta=+\sqrt{1-\sec ^2theta}\] tan theta= \[\sqrt{-8}\] does squareroot of -8 equal to \[1/2\sqrt{2}\] ?

    easy ...just use triangle...it'll help you forever |dw:1347169230431:dw| and tan theta= 1/2sqrt2

    don't use that....if you have to use that find another side first

    if so, how do i find the other side?

    ok, then if i need to find csc theta, if cot theta = -21/20 and sin theta>0 then would my answer be \[\sqrt{1+21/20}\] or

    see you have sin theta= 1/3 now 1 is perpendicular and 3 is hypotenuse now use pythagoras theorem to find another side and since you have three sides you can find any of the trigonometric value

    another side would be ^2=1^2+x^2 x^2=9-1=8 x=2sqrt2

    Problem: Find csc theta if cot theta=-21/20 and sin theta>0 if i use the pythagoreas, then would it be 20^2+x^2=21^2 ?
