    26) What identities do you know?
    5) Compare sin(5pi/3) with each of the 4 given values. As the problem is written, I see that two of the values are equal.
    14) Which quadrants is the tangent function positive in? Negative in?
    3) x = arctan(-sqrt(3)) <==> -sqrt(3) = tan(x). Which quadrants could x be in? What values of x give tan(x) = -sqrt(3)?
