Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Taking the example of Welshfella, the Cosecant function derives from the reciprocal of the Sine function. That is: \[cscx = \frac{ 1 }{ \sin x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Similarly, the Tangent function derives from the division of sine and cosine: \[tanx = \frac{ sinx }{ \cos x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is crucial, as the result of the trig function might give a zero in the denominator, which will make the function undefined. For instance, given the above formula for Tangent, I cannot include the root 90Degrees, because \[\frac{ \sin 90 }{ \cos 90 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 0 }=undefined\] Is that understandable?
