just started.
just started into trig, i understood most of the stuff, there is one thing i'm confused about.(Wondering)

my teacher said something like
sin=cos/tan or something like that i was wondering how that works.
and there's these csc=something/something
i'm lost (Thinking)
i missed the first week of trig class. since my schedual didnt have any math class, so i changed some class around to get trig into my schedual...

Um not sure if this will help but

$\tan\theta~=~\frac{\sin\theta}{\cos\theta}$

$\csc\theta~=~\frac{1}{\sin\theta}$
