### Problem 4

- For which angle measures, \(\theta\), between 0 and \(2\pi\) radians is \(\cos(\theta) = 0\)? Label the corresponding points on the unit circle.
- What are the values of \(\sin(x)\) for these angle measures?

### Solution

### Problem 5

Angle \(ABC\) measures \(\frac{\pi}{4}\) radians, and the coordinates of \(C\) are about \((0.71,0.71)\).

- The measure of angle \(ABD\) is \(\frac{3\pi}{4}\) radians. What are the approximate coordinates of \(D\)? Explain how you know.
- The measure of angle \(ABE\) is \(\frac{7\pi}{4}\) radians. What are the approximate coordinates of \(E\)? Explain how you know.

### Solution

### Problem 6

- In which quadrant is the value of the \(x\)-coordinate of a point on the unit circle always greater than the \(y\)-coordinate? Explain how you know.
- Name 3 angles in this quadrant.

### Solution

### Problem 7

Lin is comparing the graph of two functions \(g\) and \(f\). The function \(g\) is given by \(g(x) = f(x-2)\). Lin thinks the graph of \(g\) will be the same as the graph of \(f\), translated to the left by 2. Do you agree with Lin? Explain your reasoning.
