1. ## Help with a trig math problem

If x=π6x=π6, find the value of cscx(secxtanxsinx)csc⁡x(sec⁡x−tan⁡xsin⁡x).

If x=π6x=π6 find the value of cot x

Thanks!!

What does $\displaystyle x = \pi 6 x = \pi 6$ mean?

Otherwise
$\displaystyle csc(x) = \dfrac{1}{sin(x)}$
$\displaystyle sec(x) = \dfrac{1}{cos(x)}$

Without knowing what x is that's as far as I can go.
