Trigonometric Function

Definition: The six functions sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant, and cotangent. These functions can be defined several different ways.

Example: Let t be a real number. We define the sine function y = sin(t), the cosine function y = cos(t) and the tangent function y = tan(t) by the rules: sin(t) = ycoordinate of P(t) = sin(t radians), cos(t) = xcoordinate of P(t) = cos(t radians), and tan(t) = sin(t) / cos(t) = tan(t radians)
