    5pi/2 is coterminal with pi/2

    an angle has a initial side (positive x-axis), and a terminal side... it means that their terminal sides are the same.

    no... they have to differ by MULTIPLES of 2pi... notice that 5pi/2 = 2pi + pi/2 but 15pi/3 = 5pi, not a multiple of 2pi.

    think 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
