Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm csc \theta =\frac{ 1 }{ \sin \theta }\] and sin theta \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the hypotenuse is ALWAYS the longest side it is always opposite the 90 degree angle dw:1433388057774:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with relation to angle theta (symbol \(\large \theta\)), the 12 is the opposite side because it is the furthest from angle theta that you can get the 9 is the adjacent side because it is touching the angle theta dw:1433388118783:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well as Nnesha pointed out, sine = opposite/hypotenuse so you just found out that sin(theta) = 4/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sin(theta) = 4/5 1/sin(theta) = 5/4 ... take the reciprocal of both sides csc(theta) = 5/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes and not 4/5 like it states up at the very top
