### Example Question #1 : Sec, Csc, Ctan

If ,

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The sine of an angle in a right triangle (that is not the right angle) can be found by dividing the length of the side opposite the angle by the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle.

From this, the length of the side opposite the angle is proportional to 28, and the length of the hypotenuse is proportional to 53.

Without loss of generality, we'll assume that the sides are actually of length 28 and 53, respectively.

We'll use the Pythagorean theorem to determine the length of the adjacent side, which we'll refer to as .

The cotangent of an angle in a right triangle (that is not the right angle) is can be found by dividing the length of the adjacent side by the length of the opposite side.
