Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1433170800461:dw given order pair (x,y) x represent cosine y represent sin and \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I find csc and sec?

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first you have to find 3rd side of right triangle dw:1433171058392:dw sin = opposite /hyp and cos = adjacent /hyp

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep right dw:1433171191619:dw now what is reciprocal of sec and csc ?? for example tan = sin/cos sec= ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1mhm that's important part of trig you have to know this \[\huge\rm sec = \frac{ 1 }{ \cos } , \csc =\frac{ 1 }{ \sin } ,\cot =\frac{ \cos }{ \sin } \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos is adjacent over hyp so 1/adjacent/hpy = ? what is adjacent of right triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep right now multiply top wit the reciprocal of the bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Nnesha I'm back.. I know it took forever, but I never got the chance after I finished working

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @BloomLocke367 so 1/12/13? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) multiply top wit the reciprocal of the bottom fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh I didn't use the reciprocal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1mhm how did you get 169 and 133 don't square them dw:1433196171493:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15,12 aand 13 are sides of right triangle what is cos = ? sin = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos is 12/13 and sin is 5/13

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right now you need sec and csc so sec= 1/cos which is \[\frac{ 1 }{ \frac{12}{13}}\]

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1multiply 1 by the reciprocal of the bottom fraction

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example \[\huge\rm \frac{ \frac{ a }{ b } }{ \frac{ c }{ d } } = \frac{ a }{ b } \times \frac{ d }{ c }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that's sec? that's not an option...

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i did it wrong dw:1433196991226:dw sin is opposite so (cosine , sin) x coordinate would be adjacent which suppose to be 5

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so cos = 5/13 sin = 12/13

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so csc = what ? and sec = ?

BloomLocke367

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sec=13/5 and csc=13/12
