Answer

b = $\sqrt 3$ $\sin$$B$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{2}$ $\cos$$B$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $\tan$$B$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{1}$ $\csc$$B$ = $\frac{2\sqrt 3}{3}$ $\sec$$B$ = 2 $\cot$$B$ =$\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{3}$

Work Step by Step

a = 1 c = 2 Pythagorean Theorem: c$^{2}$ = a$^{2}$ + b$^{2}$ 2$^{2}$ = 1$^{2}$ + b$^{2}$ 4 = 1 + b$^{2}$ b$^{2}$ = 3 b = $\sqrt 3$ $\sin$$B$ = $\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}$ = $\frac{b}{c}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{2}$ $\cos$$B$ = $\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$ = $\frac{a}{c}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ $\tan$$B$ = $\frac{opposite}{adjacent}$ = $\frac{b}{a}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{1}$ $\csc$$B$ = $\frac{hypotenuse}{opposite}$ = $\frac{c}{b}$ = $\frac{2}{\sqrt 3}$ = $\frac{2\sqrt 3}{3}$ $\sec$$B$ = $\frac{hypotenuse}{adjacent}$ = $\frac{c}{a}$ = $\frac{2}{1}$ = 2 $\cot$$B$ = $\frac{adjacent}{opposite}$ = $\frac{a}{b}$ = $\frac{1}{\sqrt 3}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 3}{3}$
