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.
