pi < theta < 3pi/2

Find:

sin(theta)= -1 ?

cos(theta)= -3 ?

tan(theta)= 1/3 ?

sec(theta)= -1/3 ?

csc(theta)= -1 ?

That's what I came up with, but they are not correct, PLEASE help me where I went wrong!!

draw the triangle Notice it is in the third quadrant, where cosine is negative.

**Damon**, Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 7:45pmYou do not seem to have calculated the hypotenuse which you need for sin and cos and sec and csc

sqrt (1^2+3^2) = sqrt 10

tan(theta)=sin(theta)/cos(theta)

cos(theta)=sin(theta)/tan(theta)

=(1/sqrt(10))/(1/3)

= 3/sqrt(10) ??

But its incorrect!! What am I doing wrong?
