Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have the side lengths of the right triangle, apply the definition of sin cos and tan to that angle theta, and remember you are in the 4th quadrant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Example \[\sin(\theta) = \frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt{2} }\] \[\theta =\sin^{1} [\frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt{2} }] = 45\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the angle theta is 45, but recall you are in the 4th quadrant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The sin value of theta and (360theta) are the same, (the y value on the unit circle point)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right, me too when i took it, realize that the sin function is just the ycoord of the intersection of a line at angle theta through the origin and the unit circle of radius 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each point ON the unit circle of radius 1 centered at the origin, is (x , y) = ( cos(angle), sin(angle) )
