Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2look at the unit circle on the last page of this cheat sheet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you will see that at \[\frac{\pi}{4}\] both the first and second coordinate on the unit circle is \[\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\] so both sine and cosine are the same there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can also do it directly using a triangle but this one comes up so often it is best to memorize it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh lord. first of all you best find a point between 0 and 2 pi that is coterminal with \[\frac{337\pi}{4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok fine. lets to it the easy (for me) way \[\frac{337}{4}=84\tfrac{1}{4}\] and since 2 divides 84 evenly this angle is co terminal with \[\frac{\pi}{4}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sin(\frac{\pi}{4})=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}, \cos(\frac{\pi}{4})=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\] and since tangent is the ratio of sine over cosine you get 1
