**Reiny**, Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 10:29pmIf you are just learning this, I suggest you make a sketch of the right-angled triangle

a) and b) will be in quadrant I

c) and d) will be in quadrant II

I will do b) and c)

b) by Pythagoras, it is easy to find the hypotenuse to be 13

since cosŲ = 12/13

use the cosine inverse of your calculator...

enter:

2nd

cos

(12÷13)

= to get appr 22.62° or 23°

c) hypotenuse^2 = (-6)^2 + 8^2 = 100

hypot = √100 = 10

cosŲ = -6/10 = -3/5 or -.6

enter:

2nd

cos

(-.6)

=

to get 126.87° or 127°
