**Reiny**, Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 9:54amlet tan^-1 (-√3/3) = Ø

then tanØ = -√3/3

I know tan 30° or tan π/6 = +√3/3

Ø must be in quadrants II or IV

in degrees: Ø = 180-30=150° or Ø = 360-30 = 330°

in radians: Ø = π - π/6 = 5π/6 or Ø = 2π-π/6 = 11π/6

notice that your calculator gives you -30° or -π/6

which is correct since -30° is coterminal with 330°

calculators have been programmed to give the closest answer to zero, which in this case is -30°

the smallest positive answer is 5π/6
