Richard's Trigonometry Challenge 6/9/99 On this page I present some simple yet challenging Trigonometry problems. Its not calculus, nor is it rocket science, just simple rightangle 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 worldwide 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. Email 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. Click here for problem #9 Try to solve this without iteration. (No one has complained about this one being too easy!) The beatings will continue until morale improves!
