Answer

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

Work Step by Step

a = $\sqrt2$ c = 2 Pythagorean Theorem: c$^{2}$ = a$^{2}$ + b$^{2}$ 2$^{2}$ = ($\sqrt2$)$^{2}$ + b$^{2}$ 4 = 2 + b$^{2}$ b$^{2}$ = 2 b = $\sqrt 2$ $\sin$$B$ = $\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}$ = $\frac{b}{c}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 2}{2}$ $\cos$$B$ = $\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$ = $\frac{a}{c}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 2}{2}$ $\tan$$B$ = $\frac{opposite}{adjacent}$ = $\frac{b}{a}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 2}{\sqrt 2}$ = 1 $\csc$$B$ = $\frac{hypotenuse}{opposite}$ = $\frac{c}{b}$ = $\frac{2}{\sqrt 2}$ = $\frac{2\sqrt 2}{2}$ $\sec$$B$ = $\frac{hypotenuse}{adjacent}$ = $\frac{c}{a}$ = $\frac{2}{\sqrt 2}$ = $\frac{2\sqrt 2}{2}$ $\cot$$B$ = $\frac{adjacent}{opposite}$ = $\frac{a}{b}$ = $\frac{\sqrt 2}{\sqrt 2}$ = 1
