We know that secant function is the reciprocal of cosine function. sec(angle)=1/cos(angle). I know how cosine graph looks like, but how can we base on cosine graph, to draw the secant graph. Suppose a point is (45,0.7) on the cosine graph, then is this point on the secant graph becoming the reciprocal (1/45,1/0.7)? I don't really think so. Hope you can help, thanks.
