Note that, \(\displaystyle{\csc{\theta}}=\) (Hypotenuse)/(Opposide side)
So Hypotenuse=21 and Opposite side=5.
Use Pythagorean theorem to find adjacent side as follows.
Adjacent side \(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{21}^{{2}}-{5}^{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{441}-{25}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{416}}\)
Sketch a right triangle for given trigonometric function.

Find the other five trigonometric function as follows.
\(\displaystyle{\sin{\theta}}=\) (Opposide side)/(Hypotenuse) \(\displaystyle=\frac{{5}}{{21}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\cos{\theta}}=\) (Adjacent side)/(Hypotenuse) \(\displaystyle=\frac{\sqrt{{416}}}{{21}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\tan{\theta}}=\) (Opposide side)/(Adjacent side) \(\displaystyle=\frac{{5}}{\sqrt{{416}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\sec{\theta}}=\) (Hypotenuse)/(Adjacent side) \(\displaystyle=\frac{{21}}{\sqrt{{416}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\cot{\theta}}=\) (Adjacent side)/(Opposide side) \(\displaystyle=\frac{\sqrt{{416}}}{{5}}\)
