**Reiny**, Monday, June 14, 2010 at 9:21pmAre we solving for theta ??

if so, then

tan Ø = -8/9 and if cos Ø < 0

Ø must be in quadrant II

angle in standard position is 41.63°

( since tan 41.63° = +.888889 or 8/9 )

so Ø = 180 - 41.63 or 138.37°

check:

tan 138.37 = -.888889

cos 138.37 is negative.

Change your calculator to Radians if you want those units
