Suppose q is an angle in the standard position whose terminal side is in Quadrant II and tan Ø= - square root of 3

$$arctan( -\sqrt{3})=-60°$$

$$The \ free \ limb \ of \ the \ angle -60 ° \ forms \ the \ angle \ {\color{red}150 °} \ in \ the \ third \ quadrant.$$

.                                                                                           incorrect

!

Thanks Alan!

The angle is 120° to end up in quadrant II.  i.e. tan(120°) = -sqrt(3)
