Circle O below has radius 1. Eight segment lengths are labeled with lowercase letters. Six of these equal a trigonometric function of theta. Your answer to this problem should be a six letter sequence whose letters represent the segment lengths that equal the following functions (in the correct order):

sin(theta),
cos(theta),
tan(theta),
csc(theta),
sec(theta),
cot(theta).

So, for example, you would answer a,k,h,c,b,d if you thought
sin(theta) = a,
cos(theta) = k,
tan(theta) = h,
csc(theta) = c,
sec(theta) = b,
cot(theta) = d.

I was able to come up with:

sin(theta) = d,
cos(theta) = a,
tan(theta) = h,
csc(theta) = f,
sec(theta) = g,
cot(theta) = h.

  1. No idea of your diagram, but this illustration is found in many places. Probably even in your own textbook. Surely online.

  2. sin(theta) = d,
    cos(theta) = a,
    tan(theta) = h,
    csc(theta) = f,
    sec(theta) = c,
    cot(theta) = g.
