Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would the hypotenuse become a negative when calculating sec? Or would it just be: sec x = 4/sqrt15?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or better yet, why did the 1 become negative when calculating the tangent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because your function is in the second quadrant where sine is positive and cosine is negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the whole ratio became negative tangent : opposite = 1 , adjacent =  sqrt15 tan = 1 / sqrt15 = 1/sqrt15
