With this coterminal angle calculator, you'll find some positive and negative coterminal angles, as well as the coterminal angle in the 0-360° (0-2π) range. Moreover, this tool is useful for checking if two angles are coterminal.
What is a Coterminal Angle?
“The angle in a standard position which has common terminal sides is known as coterminal angle”.
It is an angle with the initial side on the positive x-axis having their terminal sides at the same location. Every angle has an infinite number of coterminal angles same as the angles 30°, –330°, and 390° are all coterminal. Solve your coterminal issues by taking the help of a coterminal angles calculator.
Coterminal Angle Formula:
Keep in mind that if there are two angles and their difference of degree measures is divisible by 360° and in the case of radian 2π then these are coterminal. So check out whether the angles α and β are terminals or not by the below formula:
In Case of Degree:
β = α ± (360°×k)
In Case of Radian:
β = α ± (2π×k)
These angles are determined by subtracting or adding a complete circle to the given angle or using a coterminal angle calculator.
- The starting position of the ray is the initial side of an angle
- The position after rotation is their coterminal angle
- Coterminal angles have the same trigonometric values
Positive and Negative Coterminal Angles:
Coterminal angles may be positive or negative and involve the rotation of multiples of 360°. You'll find positive and negative angles and also the angle in the range of 0-360° (0-2π) in the below table.
The below chart will help you to understand how to find coterminal angles and allow you to compute these angles in different values.

Find out the coterminal angle of 350°.
Given Angle = 350 degree
As we already have discussed above angles are determined by subtracting or adding a 360° or 2π to the given angle.
Positive Coterminal Angles: 710°, 1070°, 1430°, 1790° ....
Negative Coterminal Angles: -10°, -370°, -730°, -1090° ....
350° = 35/18
π ≈ 1.944 π
