Cosecant Formula

When the length of the hypotenuse is divided by the length of the opposite side, it gives the Cosecant of an angle in a right triangle. It is denoted as Cosec and sometimes as csc. It is one of the trigonometric functions, in trigonometry.

The formula for Cosec x

Cosec X =
\(\begin{array}{l}\frac{Hypotenuse}{Opposite Side}\end{array} \)

You know that there are six trigonometric functions among which sin, cos and tan are the primary functions and sec, cosec and cot are secondary.

Cosecant is the reciprocal of Sin, Cosec x =

\(\begin{array}{l}\frac{1}{SinX}\end{array} \)

Examples of Cosecant x Formula

Example 1: Find Cosec X if Sin x = 4/7

Solution: As Cosec X = 1/ Sin X



So, Cosec X = 7/4
