(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given that (csc a) = (sec0.75) and that 'a' lies in the second quadrant, determine the measure of angle 'a', to two decimal places.

2. Relevant equations

reciprocal and quotient identities.

3. The attempt at a solution

I only got as far as:

1/sin(a) = 1/cos(0.75)

The answer in the back of the book is 2.32

Can anyone guide me towards the light? thanks in advance!
