1.5secA + tanA = 5then secA - tanA = .2hence 2tanA = 4.8tanA = 2.4secA = 2.6therefore cosecA +cotA = 1.5

uu have tanA+secA=5 this cn b wriiten as secA=5-tanA

 

.

.

squaring both sides and replace sec2A=1+tan2A

.

.

u get tanA=12/5

.

u havwe tanA=12/5

.

u can construc6t atriangle with perpendicular =12 and base=5

..

u can find cosecA and cotA from this triangle

.

and u get the answer is 1.5

sec2A - tan2A = 1  =>  (secA - tanA)(secA + tanA) = 1 

secA - tanA = 1/(secA + tanA) = 1/5

Given secA + tanA = 5

Adding above two we get secA = 13/5

This produces a right angled triangle with base : b=5, perpendicular : p=12, hypotenuse : h=13

cosecA + cotA = h/p + b/p = 13/12 + 5/12 = 18/12 = 3/2
