# Evaluating Trigonometric Functions In Exercises 7–12, sketch a right triangle corresponding to the trigonometric function of the acute angle θ and find the values of the other five trigonometric functions of θ. cot θ = 5

To determine

To calculate: The values of other five trigonometric functions of θ if cotθ=5.

Explanation

Given Information:

The value of trigonometric ratio is cotθ=5.

Formula used:

Circular function definition:

sinθ=yr         cscθ=rycosθ=xr         secθ=rxtanθ=yx         cotθ=xy

Where, x is the length of the side adjacent to θ, y is the length of the side opposite to θ, and r=x2+y2 is the length of hypotenuse which is not equal to 0.

Calculation:

From the provided trigonometric function, the value of x is 5 and y is 1. So, the value of r will be:

r=x2+y2=52+12=25+1=26

Thus, r=26.

Use the obtained value of r and the provided value of x and y to create a right triangle corresponding to θ:

Now, substitute the value of x, y, and r to evaluate the exact value of the remaining trigonometric functions using circular function definition.

Now, for the value of sinθ.

sinθ=yr=126=126×2626=2626

Now, for the value of cscθ
