Answer:

Using a graphing calculator: MODE must be in radians

Explanation:

Using a graphing calculator: MODE must be in radians.

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #Y1 = sin(x)#:

graph{sin(x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #Y1 = cos(x)#:

graph{cosx [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #Y1 = tan(x)#:

graph{tan x [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #y = sec(x): Y1 = 1/(cos(x))#:

graph{1/(cos x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #y = csc(x): Y1 = 1/(sin(x))#:

graph{1/(sin x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, #y = cot(x): Y1 = 1/(tan(x))#:

graph{1/(tan x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}
