Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no... they have to differ by MULTIPLES of 2pi... notice that 5pi/2 = 2pi + pi/2 but 15pi/3 = 5pi, not a multiple of 2pi.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of it this way.... they differ by 2pi because 2pi is just a full rotation... so think of 30 degrees... 30 degrees is coterminal with 390 degrees because all you're doing is adding a full rotation 360 degrees: 30 + 360 = 390
