**Students:**Use this applet to help you construct reference triangles for various angles drawn in standard position. Choose your ratio and then enter its exact value. Slide the setup slider to help determine possible locations for the terminal ray of .

## 1.

Suppose you know the **cosecant ratio** of a certain angle drawn in standard position.
How can you use the applet above to help you see the possible quadrant(s), if any, for which its terminal ray lies?

## 2.

Same question as in (1), yet replace the word *cosecant* with **secant**.
