the sin function is the top and we get 6.877, yet the online program for submission being used is saying that that answer is incorrect, whereabouts would my error be lying? thanks for the help
why dont you graph the two functions? you will see why your answer is wrong. hint: $\displaystyle cos(0)=1$ while $\displaystyle sin(0)=0$
