    A: Concepts

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{A}\)

    1) On an interval of \([ 0,2π )\), can the sine and cosine values of a radian measure ever be equal? If so, where?

    2) What would you estimate the cosine of \(\pi \) degrees to be? Explain your reasoning.

    3) For any angle in quadrant II, if you knew the sine of the angle, how could you determine the cosine of the angle?

    4) Describe the secant function.

    Answers to Odd Problems

    1. Yes, when the reference angle is \(\dfrac{π}{4}\) and the terminal side of the angle is in quadrants I and III. Thus, at \(x=\dfrac{π}{4},\dfrac{5π}{4}\), the sine and cosine values are equal.
    3. Substitute the sine of the angle in for \(y\) in the Pythagorean Theorem \(x^2+y^2=1\). Solve for \(x\) and take the negative solution.

    B: Given a point
