Reciprocal of Cosine is Secant
It is the reciprocal of the sine ratio.
No. The inverse of the secant is called the arc-secant. The relation between the secant and the cosecant is similar to the relation between the sine and the cosine - they are somehow related, but they are not inverse functions. The secant is the reciprocal of the cosine (sec x = 1 / cos x). The cosecant is the reciprocal of the sine (cos x = 1 / sin x).
it would be secant, 1/cosine
You can calculate the cosine and then its reciprocal.
The reciprocal of cosine is secant (short form: sec), which is the hypotenuse length divided by the adjacent length.
The secant of an angle is the reciprocal of the cosine of the angle. So the secant is not defined whenever the cosine is zero That is, whenever the angle is a multiple of 180 degrees (or pi radians).
1/cos(x)=sec(x). sec is short for secant.
Basically we have two. One is sine and the other is cosine Right from these two we can get tangent Reciprocal of sine is cosecant Reciprocal of cosine is secant Reciprocal of tangent is cotangent
The inverse of sine (sin) is cosecant (csc). The inverse of cosine (cos) is secant (sec). The inverse of tangent (tan) is cotangent (cot).
cosecant = 1/sine secant = 1/cosine cotangent = 1/tangent
Sine and cosine are cofunctions, which means that their angles are complementary. Consequently, sin (90° - x) = cos x. Secant is the reciprocal of cosine so that sec x = 1/(cos x). Knowing these properties of trigonometric functions, among others, will really help you in other advance math courses.
I find it convenient to express other trigonometric functions in terms of sine and cosine - that tends to simplify things. The secant function is even because it is the reciprocal of the cosine function, which is even. The tangent function is the sine divided by the cosine - an odd function divided by an even function. Therefore it is odd. The cosecant is the reciprocal of an odd function, so it is naturally also an odd function.
a secant is a line containing a chord. A secant is a line that intersects the circle twice(or passes through a circle)
The tangent secant angle is the angle between the tangent to a circle and the secant, when the latter is extended.
That is the correct spelling of the geometric term "secant."
Secant is a trignometric function. In a right triangle, the secant of an angle is the hypotenuse over the adjacent side. It is also the inverse of cosine. For example secant(x) = 1/cos(x)
Trigonometry includes 12 baisic functions. Sine, Cosine, and Tangent are the three most baisic. Each of those functions has a reciprocal. Cosine's reciprocal is Secant, Sine reciprocal is Cosecant, and Tangent's reciprocal is Cotangent. Each of those six functions has an inverse funcion called Inverse Sine, Cos etc... or Arcsine, Arcosine, Arcsecant, etc.... The shorthand for each function is sin, caos, tan, sec, csc, cot. The inverses have a -1 notation like sin-1.
you solve secant angles when you have the hypotenuse and adjacent sides. sec=1/cos or, cos^-1 (reciprocal identity property) Tangent is solved when you have adjacent and opposite sides, or you can look at it as its what you use when you dont have the hypotenuse. tan=sin/cos or tan=opp/adj or tan=y/x
A secant line is a line that cuts a circle in two places.
The secant function is not defined for odd multipls of 90o.
It is a trigonometric equation.
