I have a question where I have to solve for the cos, tan, csc, sec, and cot when given a value of sin(theta). One of them is like this: sin(theta) = 1/3 0 < theta < pi/2 Not a clue where to go with this. Any help would be appreciated.

Use to find x. Then, you can find all the other ratios.
Kinda looks familiar to what we were doing in class. Does that mean r^2 - y^2 = x^2? Thanks a million too by the way.
