    you 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

    you can also do it directly using a triangle but this one comes up so often it is best to memorize it

    oh lord. first of all you best find a point between 0 and 2 pi that is coterminal with \[\frac{-337\pi}{4}\]

    ok 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 \[-\frac{\pi}{4}\]

    \[\sin(-\frac{\pi}{4})=-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}, \cos(-\frac{\pi}{4})=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\] and since tangent is the ratio of sine over cosine you get -1

    so the final answer is -1?
