ops **\[\csc(\theta)=\frac1{\sin(\theta)}=\frac{1}{\text{opposite/hypotenuse}}=\frac{\text{hypotenuse}}{\text{opposite}}\]

since \[\Large \csc(\theta) =\frac {hyp}{opp}=\frac{1}{\sin(\theta)}\] for \[\frac{\pi}{3}\] since it is unit circle hyp =1 x=1/2 and \[y=opp=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\] so \[\[\Large \csc({\frac{\pi}{3}})=\frac{1}{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}}\] \[\Large \csc \frac{\pi}{3}=\frac{2}{\sqrt{3}}\]

no cos is cos=adj/hyp here adj=x=1/2 and hyp=1 cos(pi/3)=1/2
