csc = 1/sin

csc^2 = 1/sin^2

 

1/ sin^2 = 4

sin^2 = 1/4

sin = +- 1/2        Got it from here?

So with sin^2x = 1/4 how do i find the values of x between 0 and 360 degrees

arcsin (1/2)  =   30     150

 

 

arcsin (-1/2) =   330        210 degrees     

 

Sorry! (for the edits)

It's ok about the edits! I figured out what you were trying to say. And then I just use the 4 quadrants im assuming (theta+180, -180 and -360)
