inverse sin (-rad2/2)=-45 degrees

I dont understand why cos is 135

**Damon**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 10:40amfor the cosine = -sqrt 2/2 negative x axis

means quadrant 2 or quadrant 3

It could be either 180 + 45 or 180 - 45

so either 135 or 225

for the sine = -sqrt 2/2

means quadrant 3 or quadrant 4

that is 180 + 45 or 360 - 45

so either 225 or 315

225 satisfies both the sine and the cosine.
