intuitive way to calculate the sine and cosine of an angleHere is an amusing method for finding the sine of an angle that makes intuitive sense: Last edited by mikau (20091208 19:23:22) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #2 20091209 05:54:55
Re: intuitive way to calculate the sine and cosine of an angleHi mikau; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20091209 06:13:54
Re: intuitive way to calculate the sine and cosine of an angleNice! And of course we can say a[0]=x/2^M for the general case! B) Last edited by mikau (20091209 06:20:26) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #4 20091209 06:28:45

Re: intuitive way to calculate the sine and cosine of an angleyou said hello 3 times! ;] A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #8 20091210 04:24:59
Re: intuitive way to calculate the sine and cosine of an anglei have no clue about it
