how do you find the function csc 225 degrees without using a calculator?

It will have the same sign as 1/csc225 = sin 225, which is negative in the third quadrant.
The absolute value is the same as that of reference angle to the 180 degree, x axis, which is 45 degrees.
csc 45 = 1/sin 45 = sqrt 2
The value of csc 225 is therefore
sqrt2 = 1.414 
thank you drwls!
