well you need a number plane |dw:1356115785816:dw| the point (-5, -12) is in the 3rd quadrant... the tan ratio is in the 3rd quadrant

2. campbell_st Group Title

in the 3rd quadrant $\tan(\theta) = \tan(x)$ |dw:1356115967164:dw| use the sides of the triangle shown to calculate $\tan(x) = \frac{opp}{adj}$
