How do you express in terms of angles less than 90 degrees?

sin 120 degrees
cos 150 degrees
tan 280 degrees

  • trig - ,

    Always ask yourself,
    1. What quadrant is the angle in? That determines the ± according to the CAST rul
    2. "How far is it to the x-axis"?

    sin 120° = sin60
    cos150° = -cos 30
    tan 280° = -tan 80°

  • trig - ,

    Sin (180 - A) = sin A. (angle in degrees)
    sin 120 = sin (180 - 60) = sin 60

    Cos (180 - A) = - cos A
    cos 150 = cos (180 - 30) = - cos 30

    tan (360 - A) = - tan A,
    tan 280 = tan (360 - 80) = - tan 80
