What is cos(11pi/3)? Explain your thinking.

What is sin(13pi/4) ? Explain your thinking.

  • trig -

    3 2/3 pi
    3 pi ends up at 180 degrees (2 pi + pi)
    2/3 pi = 120 degrees
    180 + 120 = 300 = 360 - 60
    so 60 degrees below x axis in quadrant 4
    cos -60 = 1/2
    so
    cos (11 pi/3) = 1/2
    Now you do any more like that.

    Give exact answers Sin(11pi/8) so this is sin(pi/4+pi/3) sin(pi/4)*cos(pi/3)+cos(pi/3)*sin(pi/4) rad2/2*1/2+1/2*rad2/2 which gives me rad2+rad2 all over 4 ...i don't know y im getting it wrong
