I need help with this.. it's for my midterm review. My midterm is next week. I would appreciate the help.

Determine two coterminal angles (one positive and one negative) for each angle. The answer must be in degrees.

a) 36 degrees

b) -120 degrees

c) 300 degrees

d) -420 degrees

adding or subtracting multiples of 360º to any angle will result in the rotating arm ending in the same position, thus giving you "coterminal" angles

so 36º + 360º = 396º

36 - 360 = -324

so that to each of your angles.

(for -420 you will have to add 720 to obtain a positive result)

Thx! I really do understand it now. What if they give me like pi/9.... How do i find two coterminal angles (one positive and one negative) in RADIANS.

360 degrees is 2 pi radians so adding or subtracting 2 pi (or a multiple of 2 pi) to an angle in radians brings you to the same place.

- positive coterminal angle of 120 degree? -

so I have the conterminal angle of 111 degree. So do I add and subtract with 360 degree or 180 degree?
