# 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. sec θ = 2

To determine

To calculate: The values of other five trigonometric functions of θ if secθ=2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The value of trigonometric ratio is secθ=2.

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 1 and r is 2. So, the value of y will be:

r=x2+y22=12+y22=1+y2

Take square both sides.

22=(1+y2)24=1+y2

Subtract one from both sides of the above equation.

4=1+y241=1+y213=y2y2=3

Now, take square root both sides.

y2=3y=3

Thus, y=3.

Use the obtained value of y and the provided value of x and r 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
