Example 4 Comparing Function Values of Acute Angles
(page 49)
Determine whether each statement is true or false.
(a) tan 25° < tan 23°
In the interval from 0° to 90°, as the angle increases,
the tangent of the angle increases.
tan 25° < tan 23° is false.
(b) csc 44° < csc 40°
In the interval from 0° to 90°, as the angle increases,
the sine of the angle increases, so the cosecant of
the angle decreases.
csc 44° < csc 40° is true.

apart. Station A detects a plane at C, on a bearing of 53°.
Stations B simultaneously detects the same plane, on a
bearing of 323°. Find the distance from B to C.
