    question x & y values.

    Say there is a angle b/t 0-90. A what point will the Y value be larger than the X value. I know that Y increases towards 90,to ultimately become 1. Closer to the x axis the X value should be large... anyone see what I'm saying?

    yes, x and y are trig values. specifically, x = \cos{\theta} and y = \sin{\theta}

    x = y at \theta = 45^\circ

    So, after 45 degrees the Y will be a larger value, 45 and below the X will be a greater value.
