ANGLE
Find the six trigonometric function values of the

is defined by x + 2y = 0, x ≥ 0.

the terminal side of  to
find the trigonometric

Undefined Function Values
If the terminal side of a quadrantal angle lies along
the y-axis, then the tangent and secant functions
are undefined.
If the terminal side of a quadrantal angle lies along
the x-axis, then the cotangent and cosecant
functions are undefined.

Using a Calculator
A calculator in degree mode
returns the correct values
for sin 90° and cos 90°.
The second screen shows
an ERROR message for tan
90° because 90° is not in
the domain of the tangent
function.

5.2-16
Caution
One of the most common errors
involving calculators in trigonometry
occurs when the calculator is set for
radian measure, rather than degree
measure.

IDENTIFYING THE QUADRANT OF AN
ANGLE
Identify the quadrant (or quadrants) of any angle 
that satisfies the given conditions.
(a) sin  > 0, tan  < 0.
Since sin  > 0 in quadrants I and II, and tan  < 0 in
quadrants II and IV, both conditions are met only in
quadrant II.
(b) cos  < 0, sec  < 0
The cosine and secant functions are both negative
in quadrants II and III, so  could be in either of
these two quadrants.
