For example: if i have a point (1, -1) in the forth quadrant of the xy plane. How do you convert it to angle = [7(pie)/2]+2n(pie) format? i just forget how to do that part. Also, what if the answer for tan-1(angle) is not a whole #, ex: 53.1, then how do you do the conversion? Thank you.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
