Just calculating it and getting 1.8370 I got it counted wrong, and when I asked on another forum about it they had gone through and what seems like to me, they used quotient identities and put the cos(270)/(sin(270) to equal 0.

Is that the right way to go about this? It didn't say to use quotient identities so I wasn't sure.

There's a second question with the same degree but its asking for the csc (cosecant) of 270, given in standard position.
