# Q (4) Find the values of other five trigonometric functions $\small \sec x = \frac{13}{5}$  , x lies in fourth quadrant.

S safeer

Solution
$\sec x = \frac {13}{5}$
$\cos x = \frac {1}{\sec x} = \frac{1}{\frac {13}{5}} = \frac {5}{13}$
$\sin^{2}x + \cos^{2}x = 1\\ \sin^{2}x = 1 - \cos^{2}x\\ \sin^{2}x = 1 - \frac {5}{13}\\ \sin^{2}x = 1 - \frac {25}{169} = \frac {144}{169}\\ \sin x = \sqrt { \frac {144}{169}} = \pm \frac {12}{13}$
lies in fourth quadrant. Therefore sin x is negative
$\sin x =- \frac {12}{13}$
$\csc x = \frac {1}{\sin x} = \frac {1}{-\frac {12}{13}} = -\frac {13}{12}$
$\tan x = \frac {\sin x}{\cos x} = \frac {-\frac{12}{13}}{\frac{5}{13}} = -\frac {12}{5}$
$\cot x = \frac {1}{\tan x} = \frac {1}{-\frac{12}{5}} = -\frac{5}{12}$
