Given one set of coordinates, find another set that is 120 degrees away.

given the set of coordinates (-1035,-410) how would i go about finding another set of coordinates that is 120 degrees away?

What does "120 degrees away" mean to you?

Please explain.

its been a while since i took trig. so my terminology may be incorrect, but if the given coordinates are on the circumference of the circle then there could be two more sets of coordinates on the circle that are 120 degrees apart. one set clockwise 120 degrees and another set counter clockwise 120 degrees. the center of the circle would be at (0,0) i believe.

With regard to reply #5 there is a way to simply cut to the chase directly.

Using let then take two cases .
