Image Transcriptionclose

2 ind the sin θ and sec θ if cos6 and cot θ > 0.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Calculation of sec(theta):

we can use formula 



Step 2

Calculation of sin(theta):

We can use trigonometric identities

sin^2(theta) +cos^2(theta)=1

We are given cos value as negative 

and cot value is positive 

So, theta must li...
