Unformatted text preview: x and sin(θ) = y in Definition 10.2, it is customary to rephrase the remaining four circular functions in terms of cosine and sine. The following theorem is a result of simply replacing x with cos(θ) and y with sin(θ) in Definition 10.2. Theorem 10.6. Reciprocal and Quotient Identities: • sec(θ) = 1 , provided cos(θ) = 0; if cos(θ) = 0, sec(θ) is undefined. cos(θ) • csc(θ) = 1 , provided sin(θ) = 0; if sin(θ) = 0, csc(θ) is undefined. sin(θ) • tan(θ) = sin(θ) , provided cos(θ) = 0; if cos(θ) = 0, tan(θ) is undefined. cos(θ) • cot(θ) = cos(θ) , provided sin(θ) = 0; if sin(θ) = 0, cot(θ) is undefined. sin(θ) It is high time for an example. Example 10.3.1. Find the indicated value, if it exists. 1. sec (60◦ ) 2. csc 7π 4 π 4. tan (θ), where θ is any angle coterminal with 32 . √ 5. cos (θ), where csc(θ) = − 5 and θ is a Quadrant IV angle. 6. sin (θ), where tan(θ) = 3 and θ is a Quadrant III angle. 1 Compare this with the definition given in Section 2.1. 3. cot(3) 10.3 The Six Circular Functions and Fu...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
