    just started.

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

    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
    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}
