Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1design a rt triangle with sides corresponding to the definition of csc, and then you can determine the missing side to fill in the other trig ratios

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then 13 is the long side 5 is the short side and when added together its 18?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1almost, its good to remember that sin and csc are flips of each other so if csc = 13/5, then sin = 5/13 sin = over/hyp dw:1361828131737:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos = next.to/hyp = sqrt(...)/13 sec and cos are flips tan = over/next.to = 5/sqrt(...) tan and cot are flips

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then sec and cos are the same answer tan is diffrent right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sec and cos use the same numbers; but are flipped versions of each other

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so sin i 5 / 13 then right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes it might help to figure out the sqrt part, youll need it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, then define the trig functions for me :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then tan would be 5/12 and sec would be 5/13 cos would be 13/5 and sin would be 5/13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or did i mix up sec and cos ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1youve got the right ideas, but need practice: given: csc = 13/5 , then sin = 5/13 we know the missing side is 12 now cos = 12/13 , therefore sec = 13/12 tan = 5/12, therefore cot = 12/5
