1. There is no escape from memorizing the following:
sinθ = opposite/hypotenus

cscθ = 1/sinθ
secθ = 1/cosθ
cotθ = 1/tanθ

you have all the numbers, make a sketch of your triangle and evaluate

2. actually, there is an escape.
Do about a hundred similar problems. After the first couple dozen, you will no longer have to look up the formulas; you will have learned them, not just memorized them.

Memorization will drive you crazy with trig. There are so many formulas which are similar, yet different!
Learn them live them, love them!
