Trigonometric Substitution

Trigonometric Substitution
a. Explain why the substitution x = asin(Theta) guarantees that cos(Theta) is greater than or equal to 0 .
b. What sort of restriction must we put on x and a so that the substitution x = asec(Theta)will guarantee that tan(Theta) is greater than or equal to 0?
