Referring to the given conditions, the angle falls in the Second Quadrant, where tan is " Negative "

We have BC² = AC² - AB²

=> BC² = 25² - 7² = 576

=> BC = 24

Now tan x = Perpendicular/Base = 7/24

But since tan has to be negative,

tan x = - 7/24 ............... Answer

Given that sin x = 7/25 and cos x = 24/25,

find the value of (a) tan x (b) cosec x.

(a) tan x = 7/24

(b) cosec x = 25/7

(a) tan x=sin x/cos x=(7/25)(25/24)=7/24.

(b) csc x=1/sin x=1/(7/25)=25/7.

a)

tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x)

tan(x) = (7/25)/(24/25)

= 7/25 * 25/24

= 7/24 Answer//

b) csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

= 1/7/25

=25/7 Answer//

just use the formulas for tangent and cosecant

tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x) = (7/25)/ (24/25) = 7/24

cosec(x) = 1/sin(x) = 1/ (7/25) = 25/7

cosec = 1/sin

tan = sin/cos

Plug in the values....

Remember that cosec, sin & cos etc. are nonsense. It must be csc x, sin x & cos x etc.

The angle x must fall in the 1 st quadrant, for

otherwise, cos(x)=-24/25. If x falls in the 4 th

quadrant, then sin(x)=-7/25. Now they are both +ve..
