 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Conjecture: 2*k/Pi is either a little more than an even integer or a little less than an odd integer. The conjecture is true. As k > 0 increases, satisfaction of the inequality k < sec(k)*csc(k) requires that sec(k)*csc(k) be a large positive number. Since sec(k)*csc(k) = 1/(sin(k)*cos(k)) = 2/sin(2*k), this requires that sin(2*k) be a small positive number, which occurs only when 2*k/Pi is a little more than an even integer or a little less than an odd integer. - Jon E.
