Hello, could someone please help me. I couldnt work out these questions. I have to solve X within the domain 0 deg ≤ X ≤ 360 deg (X = pheta (degrees)) 1) tan X = -1 2) sin X = -1/2 3) cos X = 0 4) cos X = -1/2 Thank you.

You trigonometric inverses and then multiply by (180/pi)

These are fundamental trigonometric equations. Then find the values of for which and then multiply by
by the way, it's "theta" did you get the questions done ok?
