Problem StatementGiven the following right triangle, find cosθ, sinθ, tanθ, secθ, cscθ, and cotθ. Do notapproximate: Find exact answers. Show all of your work and explain steps as necessary.ContextThe problem requires the identification of the exact values of the six trigonometricfunctions related to θ (theta) based on the given measurements of the right triangle. There areseveral components to consider○Right triangle: A triangle where one angle is 90°. Its three sides consist of thehypotonus which is opposite the right angle and two legs.leghypotenuseleg
○Trigonometric Functions & Ratios:Sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, andcosecant are the six trigonometric functions and are abbreviated respectively assin, soc, tan, cot, sec, and csc. The values of these functions related to θ aredefined using the trigonometric ratiossinθ=OHcsc θ=HOcosθ=AHsec θ=HAtanθ=OA
