Robbie the Robot is on a weather satellite orbiting Earth about 3600 km above the surface. The Earth’s radius is about 6400 km. He has had a malfunction in his output device, and the satellite is traveling without communication. His last report was only in terms of trigonometric values and was only partially received. It said, sin Θ < 0….. and then he was lost again

Part 1: Create a set of coordinates that would be reasonable for Robbie’s position in space and satisfy his last, partial report. Using complete sentences, describe Robbie’s location and your reasoning.

This is a really odd question. Hmm. Now I'd say that that for sin ¤ < 0, consider the cases (acute/obtuse) that represent it's angle of elevation. Usually for objects high up, that's useful and would make sense for coordinates with respect to a point.

You could send up the other parts of the question... would clarify what in the world it actually means.

Okay, well, there's one more part - "Part 2: What are the values of the sin Θ, cos Θ, and tan Θ using your coordinate point? "

That isn't much help... sorry. well I guess since this is open ended, draw a triangle , with one vertice as I dunno houston, another the robot and third the perpendicular intersection with earth

construct a triangle that gives you a negative sin value for elevation, and assign a few numbers. coordinates voila
