# Find the values of other five trigonometric functions in Exercises 1 to 5:

3. cot x = 3/4, x lies in third quadrant.

**Solution:**

Given, cot x = 3/ 4

It can be written as

tan x = 1/cot x = 1/(3/4) = 4/ 3.

Using the trigonometry identity

1 + tan^{2}x = sec^{2}x

It can be written using the values

1 + (4/ 3)2 = sec^{2} x

1 + (16 / 9) = sec^{2} x

( 9 + 16 ) / 9 = sec^{2} x

sec^{2} x = 25 / 9

sec x = ± 5 / 3

Since the value of sec x in the third quadrant is negative and x lies in the third quadrant.

sec x = - 5 /3

cos x = 1/ sec x

cos x = 1 / (-5/3)

cos x = -3/5

tan x = sin x/ cos x

sin x = tan x cos x

= 4/3 × (-3/5)

= -4/5

cosec x = 1/sin x

= 1/ (-4/5)

= -5/4

## Find the values of other five trigonometric functions in Exercises 1 to 5: 3) cot x = 3/4, x lies in third quadrant.

**Summary:**

cot x = 3/4, x lies in third quadrant. We found the other five trigonometric functions to be sin x = -4/5, cosec x = -5/4, cos x = -3/5, sec x = -5/3, and tan x = 4/3.
