# Question about trigonometry and finding x?

I really have no clue how to do this and need help. It says solve for x in the given interval.

sec x=-2radical(3)/3, pi/2 < x < pi.

The next one says csc x = 2, 0 < x < pi/2

Can someone please explain one or both of these??

* all < are greater than or equal to.

sec x=-2radical(3)/3, pi/2 < x < pi.

cosx = - 3/(2√3)..............[ -3/(2√3) ]*(√3/√3) ...............- √3/2

cosx = - √3/2

x= cos^(-1) -√3/2

x = Reference Angle of pi/6.................But in Quad II,

csc x = 2, 0 < x < pi/2

sin x = 1/2

x = sin^(-1) 1/2

If you have a question let me know how to contact you........

I tutor free online since moving to France from Florida in June 2011.

Hope this is most helpful and you will continue to allow me to tutor you.

If you dont fully understand or have a question PLEASE let me know

how to contact you so you can then contact me directly with any math questions.

If you need me for future tutoring I am not allowed to give out my

info but what you tell me on ***how to contact you*** is up to you
