Will give a medal for the correct answer... if sin theta = 12/13 and cos theta < 0, what is tan theta.

A.13 B.13/12 C. -12/5 D. 12/5 E. - 5/12

yttrium PLEASE HELP

sin = opp/hyp cos = adj/hyp <0 Therefore, we have (-x,y) |dw:1380717241460:dw|By using pythagorean theorem, we will get the third side which is the adjacent side of theta. So, cos(theta) = -5/13 Thereofore, by applying tan = sin/cosx. What will you get?

I will give you a medal if you give me THE correct ANSWER...............

@Turtle123 it is a violation of the site rules to ask for answers. OpenStudy values the Learning process - not the ‘Give you an answer’ process. Don’t post only answers - guide the asker to a solution. http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct @Yttrium gave you everything you need to find the answer. Just read what he wrote, and ask questions if you don't understand something. This is a straight-forward problem and if you actually learn HOW to do it, you will be able to do a similar problem on your own next time, in less time than it takes to have someone help you with it here.

And by the way, most of the people here who can help you LEARN care far more about THAT, than about getting a medal.
