I am having trouble finding reference angles with radians. For instance: #1) 33pi/4 #2) -23pi/6 How do I go about solving these?

Please do not be insulted by this remark: often it is a problem in basic arithmetic. . Now we can disregard all even multiples of . Thus in this case we endup with . What is the reference angle there?
I apologize, I have written them wrong...they are separate questions: #1. 33pi/4 #2. -23pi/6

We can disregard any multiple of Here is an example. . So disregard the and get the equivalent number of . Now what is the reference angle angle?
4pi/5 ?
How did you get that?
pi-pi/5=4pi/5
whoaa, wait..it is pi/5 which is 36 degrees ... right ?
5pi/12, which is 75 degrees
