Coterminal Angles

How to find the coterminal angle

Coterminal angles are two angles that are drawn in the standard position (so their initial sides are on the positive x-axis) and have the same terminal side like 110° and -250°

Another way to describe coterminal angles is that they are two angles in the standard position and one angle is a multiple of 360 degrees larger or smaller than the other. That is, if angle A has a measure of M degrees, then angle B is co-terminal if it measures M +/- 360n, where n=0,1,2,3, ...
