Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the goal is to find the coordinates of the point at the end of that angle. We are told that y = 1 at that point so we just need to find the x coordinate and we're set

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to do this we use the triangle that is made when you draw a line straight down from the point like I have in the drawing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we know the length of that side is one because we were told that y = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now if we knew the angle inside that triangle we could use the tangent function to find the length of the adjacent side, which I labelled x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, you used the wrong angle, we need to find the angle inside that triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I use the Unit Circle and says that 3pi/4 is 135... and I am looking for that inside angle I get that it is equal to 45.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, so now we can use tangent to find x \[\tan(45) = \frac{ 1 }{ x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the point would be (1, 1)?
