trig problems1. What is the sine of an acute angle whose cosine is 7/25? Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #3 20130902 08:59:17

Re: trig problemsAll triangles should be named ABC by law. What if you have a bunch of them? No difference! 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. #7 20130902 09:19:07
Re: trig problemsAnd, it would make even topologists happy. They already think all triangles are the same!

Re: trig problemsDefinitely! And there's so many of 'em!

Re: trig problemsUnfortunately, that does not reduce their numbers. Only one thing does.

Re: trig problemsForcing them to computational math would reduce their numbers real quick. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
