if 0< theta < 90 and tan theta equals pie3/2, find cos theta.i put 2/pie 7 but i was wrong please correct.

I don't know what you mean by
pie3/2 and by 2/pie 7

do you mean 3pi/2 ? or ???
2/pie 7 is even more confusing.

so you can form a right-angled triangle in the first quadrant, fill in those two sides, then use Pythagoras to find the hypotenuse.

my nswers was 2/pi7 but i ws wrong

• math -

you did not answer my question.

What do you mean by 2/pi7 ???

do you mean 2/(7pi) ? or (2/pi)(7) ? or ...

write it as (numerator)/(denominator)

• math -

sorry my nswer was 2/(7 pi) but it ws wrong
