In which quadrant does the angle
288 degrees lie?
When we think about the four
quadrants of the coordinate grid and label them one through four, we know that the
initial side measures zero degrees. And then each additional quadrant
is 90 more degrees. And then a full rotation is
360. When we measure angles in
coordinate grids, we begin at the 𝑥-axis and proceed in a counterclockwise measure
if we’re dealing with a positive angle. And for us, that means we’ll go
from the initial side, just past 270, since we know that 288 falls between 270 and
360. And we see that this angle is in
the fourth quadrant.
