Richard's Trigonometry Challenge
On this page I present some simple yet challenging Trigonometry problems.
Its not calculus, nor is it rocket science, just simple right-angle trig. All you will need is a $10.00 calculator that does trig functions. (But, if you are reading this, you probably already have a computer!)
Gain world-wide recognition! Solve the problem!
I'll post the names of the first few people who correctly answer each question. If enough people want to know, I'll even post the solutions.
E-mail the answer to me. Be sure and include an explanation of how you arrived at the answer, i.e., what side and what angle did you plug into what formula. I will not accept an answer without an explanation.
I inflict pain and suffering on my students with stuff like this.
Think you know enough math to be a machinist?
Okay, okay, I know what your thinking. . ."What's the point?"
The point is that with a working knowledge of math you can make better parts.

(No one has complained about this one being too easy!)
The beatings will continue until morale improves!
