# Which quadrant does the terminal side of 950 degrees lie?

The terminal side of angle ${950}^{o}$ lies in the third quadrant.
To calculate the quadrant first we can reduce the angle to the angle smaller than ${360}^{o}$:
$950 = 2 \times 360 + 230$, so ${950}^{o}$ lies in the same quadrant as ${230}^{o}$
The angle ${230}^{o}$ lies between ${180}^{o}$ and ${270}^{o}$, so its terminal side lies in the 3rd quadrant.
