look up the unit circle

for cos. The higher the degree up to 90 the lower the value. from 90 to 180 the value increases. for sin it is the opposite. **UNIT CIRCLE**

its half of pi/6

cos is the x value and sin in the y value
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can see the the y value increases to 90 then goes back down. x value it opposite

  • lilsis76
oh...okay i didnt see that. so then the cos would be larger because its sqrt3/2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1355084128293:dw|x value is greater than the y value right. more right than up. so cos pi/12 is bigger
anonymous

correct

so what is b)

cool, i didnt understand this what so ever last time. let me try the next one okay. and ill give u my answer. could u tell me if its right? so cos 18, would be larger than cos 54 right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
right

try C :D

okay let me see

Careful because it is kind of a trick question
lilsis76
  • lilsis76
it be 320?
lilsis76
  • lilsis76
WAIT!, wait y
lilsis76
  • lilsis76
haha y
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes. because sin is negative in this quadrant. It is a big red flag
anonymous
  • anonymous
sin will always be less in quadrant 4
lilsis76
  • lilsis76
okay, so the sin would mean its smaller so that means the cos will be smaller too
anonymous
  • anonymous
I wouldn't say that
lilsis76
  • lilsis76
okay thank you so much haha. im trying to correct my last test givin back to me and i got alot wrong cuz i didnt understand lots of things
anonymous
  • anonymous
I hope this helped. Just think of cos as the x value on the circle and sin as the y value on the circle. Always helped me
