Find \(\sf cos(B)\) and then do the reciprocal of that to find out what \(\sf sec(B) \) is. :)

  • anonymous
so it's Sec B b/c?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
No... What is \(\sf cos(B)\) first?
anonymous
  • anonymous
cos(B) is adj/hyp

SEC(B)=hypotenuse/adjacent which is the same as the reciprocal of COS(B)

^ exactly.

So what side is adjacent to angle B?

the opposite?

oh. sorry ....

so what's the annswer?

b

the one between A and C
AbdullahM

That is the side opposite to it, not adjacent.

a?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
correct, and what is the hypotenuse?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
Sec(B)=hypotenuse/adjacent so adj=a \(\sf\Large Sec(B)=\frac{Hypotenuse}{a}\) Which answer choice has a in the denominator?

the denominator?
