    Well there is a couple of ways to go about this problem. You could graph it or you could get an exact number. Try putting cos(2pi) into your calculator to get a decimal answer.

    Well in a unit circle yes. Is that what the problem is asking for? Cosine is in the fourth quadrant, it is always positive in there. The coordinates of 2pi are on 0 degrees

    cos2pi =cos360 =cos(90*4+0) = cos0 =1
