Solution

Consider a right-angle triangle ΔABC, right-angled at point B.

sec theta = "Hypotenuse"/"Side adjacent to "angle theta

13/12 = (AC)/(AB)

If AC is 13k, AB will be 12k, where k is a positive integer.

Applying Pythagoras theorem in ΔABC, we obtain

(AC)2 = (AB)2 + (BC)2

(13k)2 = (12k)2 + (BC)2

169k2 = 144k2 + BC2

25k2 = BC2

BC = 5k

`sin theta = (`

`cos theta = (`

`tan theta = (`

`cot theta = (`

`cosec theta = (`
