why is sin(-20)/cos 380

equal to tan (-200)

**bobpursley**, Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 10:12pmI covered this previously.

Sin(theta)=sin(theta+360) in degrees

Sin(-theta)=sin(Theta) in degrees

sin(-20)=-sin(20) =-sin(20+360)=-sin(380)

then...

Tan(-theta)=-tan(theta).

Your refusal to post some sort of a meaningful name in the name box is not helping you get meaningful assistance.
