    You can use a cast diagram...

    Could do it by inspection of the graphs as wel.

    Yeah, although I always find it easier to just think about the graph.

    You know sin(x) = sin(180-x) = -sin(-x) = -sin(180+x) = -sin(360-x) so just pick whichever one of these gives you an acute angle for the term in the brackets etc

    cos(x) has similar (but not the same) identities. Finally you also know that cos(x) = sin(x+90)

    Im really sorry but how would i know that it gives me an acute angle?

    It's very much like having a value between 0 and 180 and then finding all the other values... instead you have a value between 180 and 360 and finding all the other values

    so for sin(312), you'd want to pick the identity sin(x) = -sin(360-x) because 360-312 is 48 which is an acute angle. So you answer would be sin(312) = -sin(48)
