Determine in which quadrant you are in,
then use the CAST rule
e.g.
sin(245°)
= sin( 115°) , (going 115 counterclockwise is the same as going 245° clockwise )
115° is in quad II
in quad II , sine is positive, so
sin(245°) is positive
you can always check with your calculator.
in sec(7/2) , remember that if no units are stated, radians are assumed.
so 7/2 is coterminal with 2π  7/2 which is appr 2.78
