I just came across a problem that wants you to solve for csc of an angle in radians... However, I'm confused about the answer given.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the problem:

Find the csc when t=-2pi/3, which is equivalent to -120 degrees right?

I got -2sqrt.(3)/3 but the answer in the back is -2sqrt.(3)/2 Why is it a 2 instead of a three??

The sin is -sqrt.(3)/2 and it is correct, so shouldn't the csc be the reciprocal of sin?? 1/sin theta?? so 1/(-2sqrt.(3)/3)????????

Thanks!
