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

"Solve csc x + 2 = 0 for 0 <= x < 2 [tex]\pi[/tex]

Choices are:

A. [tex]\pi[/tex]/6 and 5[tex]\pi[/tex]/6

B. [tex]\pi[/tex]/6 and 7[tex]\pi[/tex]/6

C. 4[tex]\pi[/tex]/3 and 5[tex]\pi[/tex]/3

D. 7[tex]\pi[/tex]/6 and 11[tex]\pi[/tex]/6

2. Relevant equations

csc x =2

sin x = 1/2 = 30 degrees = [tex]\pi[/tex]/6

3. The attempt at a solution

From csc x + 2 = 0

I get csc x = 2

Which is:

1/sin = 1/2 and I know that 1/2 is [tex]\pi[/tex]/6

So the answer is either A or B but I don't understand where the second answer comes from.
