@aussy123 It might help you to know that with your angle in degrees, \[\large \cos \ \theta = \sin (90^o - \theta) \]

So \[\large \cos(125^o)=\sin(90^o - 125^o)=\sin(-35^o)\]

It's an identity. It didn't say to use a specific function, it just says use a function.

the answer is -cos55

I suppose so. You're right :) It stems from the fact that it's equal to sin(-35) = -sin(35) = -cos(90 - 35)

I tried that way too, but I also did cos 125 = cos (180 - 125) = - cos 55

Well, as long as your methods are valid, it should be no problem.
