If secθ = 17, what is sinθ? tanθ?
In order to do this would we have to draw a triangle? Secant is hyp/opp. Thus should the hyp be 17 and the opp be 1?
If that is the case will the answer be sinθ = 16.97/17 and tanθ = 16.97/1 = 16.97?
PS: I got the 16.97 from using the a^2 + b^2 = c^2 formula. Please tell me if this is correct or is there something else to it. Thank you so much.
wait..
adjacent/hyp = cosine(theta). secant is its reciprocal.
