Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Michael, a student:

Could you please help with this one.

32 cis30degrees / 4 cis150degrees

Hi Michael.

Think about "Reference Angles". What is the reference angle for 150 degrees? Is cosine positive or negative there? Can you cancel out the cosines?
