when the angle is in quadrant II 53.4 degrees left of north then east component is - sin then north component is + cos if you want the angle from the x axis then it is 90 - 53.4 = 36.6 then you could use cos and sin like you want because sin (90-x) = cos x cos (90-x) = sin x :)

Because the angle 53.4 is left from the Y axis, not up from the X axis. They tricked you with the west of north that is left of the Y axis DRAW the picture.
