For 4x^2 - 4xy + y^2 = 4 find θ, the angle of rotation about the origin, to the nearest degree?
a) 27°
b) 63°
c) 333°
d) 307°

I got A, is this right?

  • Math -

    I had -26.6 or 333.4 in a positive direction

    tan 2θ = B/(A-C)
    = -4/(4-1) = -4/3
    2θ = -53.13
    θ = -26.13

    oh, so it is C?

  • Math -

    has to be
    didn't you also get -26.6 degrees?
    that is not given.
    What angle is coterminal with -26.6 ?
    It is 333.4 .
