  1. a.

    sin(-theta)= -sin(theta)

    sin(-pi/6)= - sin(pi/6)= -1/2

    b.

    cos(-theta)=cos(theta)

    cos(-pi/6)=cos(pi/6)= sqroot(3)/2

    c.

    -pi

    d.

    The cosine function, like all of the trigonometric functions, is periodic about the rotation around a circle. Since the cosine is defined as the adjacent/hypotenuse of a right triangle, you can clearly see that its value can never be greater than one or less than -1 since the hypotenuse is always longer than the adjacent side. It turns out that, indeed, the cosine's range is from -1 to 1, written [-1,1].

    -pi/2,pi
