**Damon**, Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 1:48amsides of triangle are sqrt 2, sqrt 2 , 2 so

cos x also = -sqrt 2 / 2

tan = sin / cos

sec = 1/cos

csc = 1/sin

ctn = 1/tan

**Anonymous**, Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 1:55amsin = -sqrt 2 / 2

cos = -sqrt 2 / 2

tan = 1

cot = 1

sec = -sqrt 2

csc = -sqrt 2

is that right ?

okay now how can i find the value?

= (1 1/4) pi in radians
