    Answer: Choice E. 4/sqrt(7)

    This is the same as writing [tex]\frac{4}{\sqrt{7}}[/tex]

    =================================================

    Explanation:

    0.75 = 3/4

    Recall that cosine is the ratio of adjacent over hypotenuse.

    That means if cos(theta) = 3/4, then the adjacent is 3 units and the hypotenuse is 4 units.

    Through the pythagorean theorem, we would then find that

    a^2+b^2 = c^2

    a = sqrt(c^2 – b^2)

    a = sqrt(4^2 – 3^2)

    a = sqrt(7)

    This is the opposite side of reference angle theta.

    From here, we can say

    csc(angle) = hypotenuse/opposite

    csc(theta) = 4/sqrt(7)

    which points to choice E as the final answer.
