**Reiny**, Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 9:42pmIf you put P and Q on the same grid, did you notice that OQ is an extension of OP ?

so the angle formed by OP and OQ are the same

notice the hypotenuse of the smaller triangle is 5 by Pythagoras, and of the larger triangle it is 15

try this on your calculator:

2nd

cos

(

-3÷5

)

= to get 126.8698...°

now try:

2nd

cos

(

-9÷15

)

=

to get exactly the same angle of 126.8698...°
