$\tan$ 3015$^{\circ}$ = -1

Work Step by Step

$\tan$ 3015$^{\circ}$ First, lets find the coterminal angle. 3015$^{\circ}$ - 8(360$^{\circ}$) = 135$^{\circ}$ Next, we find the reference angle. $\theta$$^{1}$ = 180$^{\circ}$ - 135$^{\circ}$ = 45$^{\circ}$ Since the coterminal angle is in Quadrant III, $\tan$ is negative. Therefore: $\tan$ 3015$^{\circ}$ = -1
