how do you find the reference angle of csc,sec, cot?
for example: csc theta= 2 times square root of 3 / 2

Use a hand calculator or a table of trig function values.
If csc theta = 2 sqrt(3/2) = sqrt 6 = 2.44949.., then sin theta = 0.40825
theta = arcsin 0.40825 = 24.095 degrees
I used the "arcsin" or sin^1 function on my HP hand calculator for the last step. I also used the "sqrt" function earlier.

Hello all, In our math class, we are practicing the trigonometric identities (i.e., sin^2(x)+cos^2(x)=1 or cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x). Now, we are working on proofs that two sides of an equation are equal (for example, sin(x)*csc(x)=1; sin(x)csc(x)=sin(x)/sin(x)=1; …
