A chord of a circle is a geometric line segment whose endpoints both lie on the circumference of the circle. A secant or a secant line is the line extension of a chord.

secant? sin(e)? variable as opposed to x or y etc.

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.
