    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Eliminate the parameter to find a Cartesian equation for the curve.
    X=sin(t), y=csc(x)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Is this correct?
    So y=csc(arcsin(x)

    Can I simplify it further?

    is the second equation a typo: x=sin(t), y=csc(x) should it be y=csc(t)?

    from your substitution it appears that is what you think it is.
