## anonymous one year ago Find cot θ if csc=\frac{ sqrt{17} }{ 4 } and tan θ>0.

$\csc=\frac{ \sqrt{17} }{ 4 }$

I know that I will use Pythagorean theorem, but I'm kinda stuck with it.

cscθ=17−−√4→1sinθ=17−−√4→sinθ=417−−√

13. Lurker

Pythagorean theorem

14. anonymous

Yes, but with what I drew above, is that the correct way to solve it?

15. Lurker

yes
