If sin(t) = -2/48 and cos(t) < 0 what is the value of cos(t) to the nearest thousandth?

If sin(t) = -14/34 and cos(t) < 0, what is the value of tan(t) to the nearest thousandth?

If tan(t) = -15/19 and sin(t) < 0, what is sin(t) to the nearest thousandth?

If tan(t) = 11/-12 and sin(t) < 0, what is cos(t) to the nearest thousandth?

The path of a projectile fired at an inclination t0 to the horizontal with initial velocity v feet per second is a parabola. The horizontal distance R, in feet, that the projectile travels is given by R = v2sin(2t)/32.2. What is R if v = 152 and t = 74? Give your answer to the nearest thousandth.

Show the steps please!

    I will do the first, then you do the remaining ones in the same way

    sin t = -2/48 = -1/24 and cos t < 0
    therefore t must be in quadrant III ( by CAST rule)
    I make a triangle, the missing side is x
    x^2 + 1^2 = 24^2
    x = √575
    then in III, cos t = -√575/24 = appr. -.999

    or

    take sin^-1 (+1/24) to get 2.388°
    so in III , t = 180+2.388 = 182.388°
    cos 182.388° = appr. -.999
