hi, i was wondering how do i start this.
Assume that the terminal side of an angle of t radians in standard position lies in quadrant II on the straight line through (2, 5) and (6, 15).
Find sin(t), cos(t), tan(t). (Hint: Find a point on the terminal side of the angle.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, notice you have 2 points first point (2,5) let x = 2 and y = 5 Then draw a right triangle with angle (t) , replace the y side of the triangle with 5 and the x side of the triangle with 2. After that find the hypot. using this equation: \[c^2 = x^2 + y^2\] substitute and find c. After that apply the cosine, sine and tan rule which is:  sin(t) = opposite/hyp  cos(t) = adjacent/hyp  tan(t) = sin(t)/cos(t) All you have to do now is substitute the values and you're done :)
