Relative
to angle A, this is how the sides of a right triangle
would be labeled. |

**The cosecant of
angle A equals the length of the hypotenuse divided by the
length of the opposite side.**

**We could write:**

**csc(A) = hyp / opp**

**So, for
example, if the length of the hypotenuse was 10 and the
length of the opposite side was 6, then we would write:**

**csc(A) = 10 / 6**

**csc(A) = 1.6667**
