PreCalc&Trig The point (-5,-12) is on the terminal side of an angle in standard position. Determine the exact value of tanθ.
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
in the 3rd quadrant \[\tan(\theta) = \tan(x)\] |dw:1356115967164:dw| use the sides of the triangle shown to calculate \[\tan(x) = \frac{opp}{adj}\]
So 12/5? I'm terrible at math.xD
thats the exact value
That's all it is? That doesn't seem as hard as I thought.
its just about knowing quadrants and whats positive and negative
Okay, well thank you very much!
