(fig 9) 

This circle helps to figure out if the cosine of any given angle in the I, II, III or IV cuadrants is positive or negative.
The cosine of any angle in the I cuadrant, as in an angle from 0° to 90°, is positive (as well as the tangent and sine). The cosine of any angle in the II cuadrant, as in an angle from 90° to 180°, is negative (as well as the tangent). Only the sine is positive. The cosine of any angle in the III cuadrant, as in an angle from 180° to 270°, is negative (as well as the sine). Only the Tangent is positive. The cosine of any angle in the IV cuadrant, as in an angle from 270° to 360°, is positive. (Both the tangent and sine are negative.)
