r=20

0=140

x=r cos (o)

y=r sin (o)

x=20 cos (140)

y=20 sin (140)

x=20 (-0.7660)= -15.32

y=20 (0.6427)= 12.85

(-15.32, 12.86)

on my answer on my paper, I left off the - and the ) at the end. She pointed at the ( at the beginning but she didn't add the negative sign for 15.32 so I'm confused on whether I got it wrong just because I left off the parenthesis at the end or the answer isn't (-15.32, 12.86)

**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 10:11pmI answered it the last time you posted it.

I will leave it up to you to find it, think it was sometime this afternoon.

Your correct answer is (-15.32,12.85)

leaving a negative sign off, is a major error,

forgetting a bracket at the end I would consider "bad form"

I also would not give full marks if your sollution contained "bad form".

You must be thinking of the other question about writing the standard form of the equation of the circle but oh well.
