ISBN 9780321795465 # Use a calculator to find the approximate value of each expression rounded to two decimal places: $\mathrm{csc}\frac{5\pi }{13}$

The approximate value of the expression $\mathrm{csc}\frac{5\pi }{13}$ is $1.07$.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given information

We are given an expression $\mathrm{csc}\frac{5\pi }{13}$

We need to find the approximate value of the expression that is rounded to two decimal places.

## Step 2. Concept

• Note that $\mathrm{csc}\theta =\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}\theta }$
• While finding the values of the trigonometric functions using a calculator, we need to set the correct MODE in the calculator depending on whether the angle is in radian or in degree.

## Step 3. Finding the approximate value of the given expression

The given trigonometric expression is, $\mathrm{csc}\frac{5\pi }{13}$

Since the angle is in radian, we have to set the correct MODE in the calculator to receive radian.

Most of the calculators do not have $\mathrm{csc}$ key. Therefore we will make use of the relation, $\mathrm{csc}\theta =\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}\theta }$

Therefore,

role="math" localid="1646330067684" $\mathrm{csc}\left(\frac{5\pi }{13}\right)=\frac{1}{\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{5\pi }{13}\right)}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\mathrm{csc}\left(\frac{5\pi }{13}\right)\approx 1.07$

which is rounded off two two decimal places.

The approximate value of the expression $\mathrm{csc}\left(\frac{5\pi }{13}\right)=1.07$ ### Want to see more solutions like these?
