    Help solving trig equation

    "Algebraically solve sec\Theta csc\Theta cot\Theta = 4 where 0\leq \Theta\leq 2\pi, to the nearest hundredth of a radian.

    So I've done \frac{1}{cos\Theta} X \frac{1}{sin\Theta} X \frac{cos\Theta}{sin\Theta} = 4 which results in \frac{cos\Theta}{cos\Theta sin^2\Theta} = 4. The cosines cancel out leaving the sin^2\Theta. Then I took the square root of that and the 4 and ended up with sin\Theta = 2. But when I enter this into my calculator, I get a domain error. Can I get some help as to where I went wrong and maybe steer me in the right direction?

    After I typed it out and looked at it, I saw my rather obvious and embarrassing mistake. Never mind.
