## What quadrants are the trig functions positive and negative?

Four Quadrants

- In Quadrant I both x and y are positive,
- in Quadrant II x is negative (y is still positive),
- in Quadrant III both x and y are negative, and.
- in Quadrant IV x is positive again, and y is negative.

## What trig functions are negative in which quadrants?

Tan. Cot So all these trigonometric functions will give negative answers in Quadrant 2 if any angle lies between 900 and 1800 are given with these trigonometric functions. Only the trigonometric functions Sin and Cosec are positive in Quadrant 2.

**Which trigonometric functions are positive and negative?**

The sine of any angle in the second quadrant between 90 and 180 degrees is also positive. However, the cosine and tangent of any angle in this quadrant is negative. In the third quadrant, the tangent of any angle is positive, whereas the sine and cosine of any angle between 180 and 270 degrees is negative.

**What trig functions are positive in quadrant 3?**

In the third quadrant, only tangent and cotangent are positive.

### What trig functions are positive in quadrant 4?

Sine and cosecant are positive in Quadrant 2, tangent and cotangent are positive in Quadrant 3, and cosine and secant are positive in Quadrant 4.

### Is sin positive or negative in quadrant 4?

Sine, Cosine and Tangent in Quadrant 4 Hence, Sine and Tangent are negative and only Cosine (C) is positive.

**In which quadrant is tan positive?**

third quadrant

In the first quadrant, the values for sin, cos and tan are positive. In the second quadrant, the values for sin are positive only. In the third quadrant, the values for tan are positive only.

**Which function is positive in quadrant IV?**

Finally, in the fourth quadrant, only cosine and secant are positive.

## In what quadrants is sine negative?

The sine ratio is y/r, and the hypotenuse r is always positive. So the sine will be negative when y is negative, which happens in the third and fourth quadrants.

## Is tan positive quadrant 4?

It means: In the first quadrant (I), all ratios are positive. In the second quadrant (II), sine (and cosec) are positive. In the third quadrant (III), tan (and cotan) are positive. In the fourth quadrant (IV), cos (and sec) are positive.

**Where is Cos negative?**

Cosine is negative in two quadrants: quadrants 2 and 3 (the left quadrants, where x is negative). The only quadrant that shares both qualities is quadrant 3.

**Which functions are positive in which quadrant?**

All trig functions (sin, cos, tan, sec, csc, cot) are positive in the first quadrant.

### Which trig function is positive in quadrant 3?

### How to find trig functions of quadrantal angles?

– Find the reference angle for the given angle. – Rewrite the original trig function with the reference angle. – Affix the appropriate sign to the trig function (+ or -), depending which quadrant the angle terminates in. – Evaluate the trig function.

**Which quadrants are positive?**

grow,get bigger,get larger,become greater,enlarge,expand,swell.

**What quadrants is sine positive?**

– θ is already between 0° and 360° – 120° lies in quadrant II – 180° – 120° = 60°, so the reference angle is 60°

## Which quadrants are CSC, SEC, and cot positive in?

The inverse cos, sec, and cot functions will return values in the I and II Quadrants, and the inverse sin, csc, and tan functions will return values in the I and IV Quadrants (but remember that you need the negative values in Quadrant IV). Similarly one may ask, what quadrants are sin positive?
