    sec x=11/9 so both sec x and cos x are positive

    tan x<0 means sin x<0 from above observation

    Hence the angle lies in 4th quadrant

    Now just use the right triangle and find all other trigonometric ratios. Don't forget to put correct sign according to 4th quadrant.

    I tired doing that, but it wasn't correct. I found cosine x = 9/11, but the others I cant find
