Remember this :All Silver Tea Cups.

1st 2nd 3rd 4th

here 1,2,3,4, are the respective quadrants.

ALL(In 1st quadrant -All trigonometric functions are positive.)

SILVER -refers to Sine function which is +ve in 2nd Q

TEA-refers to tangent function which is +ve in 3rd Q

CUPS-refers to cosine function which is +ve in 4th quadrant

x is +ve so 1/x is also positive.

Applies even to the trigonometric functions
