Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm I don't understand the question :d Do they want the degree measure? Or they want the closest "special angle" maybe?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think they want radians

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm ok :) Then for coterminal we want to spin a full rotation around the circle and land in the same spot. So one coterminal angle would be: \(\large\rm 1.1+2\pi\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How bout if we want to spin backwards? Any ideas? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the thing is I believe they want us to convert the 1.1 into a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and of course you will go clockwise for the negative :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm there is no reason for us to write as a fraction if we're staying in radians. Unless you want to relate it to one of your special angles. 1.1 radians is approximately 31.5 degrees which is approximately pi/6. But I don't think that's what they're asking for. Hmmm....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I put in 11pi/1010pi/5 which is 9pi/10 for the negative angle. and for the positive 11pi/10+10pi/5 which is 31pi/10 but that is incorrect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well keep in mind that:\[\large\rm 1.1=\frac{11}{10}\]\[\large\rm 1.1\ne\frac{11\pi}{10}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can get a common denominator if you like,\[\large\rm \frac{11}{10}+\frac{20\pi}{10}=\frac{11+20\pi}{10}\]But it looks a lot nicer if you just leave it as \(\large\rm 1.1+2\pi\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just don't combine the numerators:\[\large\rm 11+20\pi\ne31\pi\]:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the positive angle it would just be 1.1+2pi?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ya i think that's all they want us to input. Do you get multiple guesses? XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get 3 attempts and then I get a new problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and for the negative it was be 1.12pi?
