I don't know what you mean by

pie3/2 and by 2/pie 7

do you mean 3pi/2 ? or ???

2/pie 7 is even more confusing.

remember tan(theta) = opposite/ adjacent

so you can form a right-angled triangle in the first quadrant, fill in those two sides, then use Pythagoras to find the hypotenuse.

And cos(theta) = adjacent/hypotenuse

you did not answer my question.

What do you mean by 2/pi7 ???

do you mean 2/(7pi) ? or (2/pi)(7) ? or ...

write it as (numerator)/(denominator)
