cos(t)=-√50
tan(t)=7
csc(t)=√50/7
sec(t)=√50
The book gives the following answers:
sin(t)=-7√2/10
cos(t)=-√2/10
tan(t)=7
csc(t)=-5√2/7
cot(t)=1/7
I can't quite figure out how I got the answers I did (and that they are so different from the answers shown in the book). Can anyone help me clear this up?
