…csc theta = 5/3 to determine the position of a boating accident. If theta is on the interval (pi/2, pi), find the exact value of tan 2theta + cos theta/2.
from geometry csc theta=1/sin theta
hence 1/sin theta=5/3
this implies that sin theta=3/5 (inverse of 5/3)
and theta = Arcsin(3/5)
= 36.86 degrees
tan 2theta + cos theta/2 = tan (2*36.86) + cos(36.86/2)
=tan 73.72 + cos 18.43
