Short Answer

Find the values of the trigonometric functions of t from the given information.

sint=45, terminal point of t is in Quadrant IV

The values of the trigonometric functions are cost=35,tant=43,csct=54,sect=53, and cott=34.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. State the Trigonometric identities.

The reciprocal identities are csct=1sint,sect=1cost,cott=1tant,tant=sintcost and cot=costsint.

The Pythagorean identities are:

1. sin2t+cos2t=1

2. tan2t+1=sec2t

3. cot2t+1=csc2t

Step 2. Formula used. 

Now use Pythagorean Identity sin2t+cos2t=1, substitute 45 for sint and simplify for cost.

sin2t+cos2t=1 452+cos2t=11625+cos2t1625=11625 cos2t=925 cost=±35

Now, t is given to be in quadrant IV, and quadrant IV, cost>0, therefore, cost=35.

Now substitute 45 for sint for 35and cost into reciprocal identity tant=sintcost and simplify for tant.

tant=sintcost =4535 =43

Step 3. Find other trigonometric functions.

Use the values of sint,cost and tant to find csct,sect and cott.
