Try a reference triangle. If you don't know what I mean, write back, I'll explain it more.
The basic idea is to draw a triangle with an angle of which the sine is 3/5. Then figure out what the cosine of that angle must be.
thanks so much
so the ref triangle would tell me that the cos is 4/5? Its silly that was so easy. thanks again
Yes. Keep that reference triangle in mind, it's often useful, in integration for example.
