**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 12:10amfirst find their intersection

sinx = cosx

sinx/cosx = 1

tanx = 1

x = 45° or π/4 radians

for y = sinx , dy/dx = cosx

so at x = π/4 , dy/dx = 1/√2

tan^-1(1/√2) = 35.26°

for y = cosx , dy/dx = -sinx

so at x = π/4 , dy/dx = -1/√2

tan^-1(-1/√2) = 144.74°

angle between the two tangents = 144.74 - 35.26 = 109.48°

set your calculator to radians if you need your answer in radians.
