Trig, What would this reduce to?

  1. Sep 23, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    cos(-225)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Would it become, -cos45 ?
    Just want to make sure.

    Are we to assume that this is 225 degrees?

    If so then 225= 360- 35, NOT 45.

    TheRedDevil18, you're correct.

    That's not right, it's 225 = 360 - 135.
