How do you determine the quadrant in which the angle #-3.4^circ# lies?
It is quite simple. Because of the negative sign of the angle, move clockwise
When we talk about the quadrant an angle is in, we're really talking about the quadrant the terminal arm of the angle is in, when the angle is drawn with its initial arm along the
To draw an angle, imagine a clock centered at the origin, with the minute hand pointing to the right (at the "3"). Then, rotate the hand counterclockwise (towards the "12") by the amount of the angle. Since the angle
Which quadrant is this? The quadrants are named in increasing order, starting with quadrant 1 (
So the angle
