  1. 1. Any point P on the unit circle has coordinates (cosØ, sinØ)
    so cosØ = -15/17
    sinØ = -8/17

    2. x = arctan(-√3)
    or
    tanx = -√3/1 , we know tan 60°=+√3
    x must be in II or IV
    x = 120° or 300° or -60° or ....

    3. sinØ = -4/5
    Ø is in IV
    recognize the 3 4 5 triangle
    so cosØ = 3/5
