It is given that `x = 4*tan theta` .
For the angle `theta` , the ratio of the height and the base is x/4.
The value of `theta` would differ for different values of x.
Taking a random value of x = 4, `tan theta = 1` . In this case: `sin theta = 1/sqrt 2` , `cos theta = 1/sqrt 2` , `sec theta = cosec theta = sqrt 2` and `cot theta = tan theta = 1` .
The corresponding diagram of the triangle is:
