Page 3 - JT.axis toward the right. The sign and magnitude of the angle will determine the position of the terminal line, causing it to coincide with one of the axes or to fall in one of the quadrants. An angle is said to be of the first, second, third, or fourth. quadrant according as its terminal line falls in that quadrant. While the acute angle is of the first quadrant, the converse is by no means necessarily true. The terminal line of every angle, however large, must coincide with the terminal line of...
