**Topic:** Help With Pyth And Trig.
**Username:** Jamesbuk Posted 2007-04-22 15:43:02 and read 1920 times.Hi guys and girls,
I'm coming up to my final maths exams for this stage of my education. We have been told that Pythagoras and trigonometry will be included in this exam but not how much.
I was never taught either of these due to me being in a lower maths set at the time and when I was moved up I asked him to teach me it but he refused and told me to look on the internet.
I understand that working out angles of a triangle, lengths of sides of a triangle and working out the area of a triangle might be in the exam.
I have looked around on the internet but it is all to complex and full on for me. Could someone kindly right out a few basic rules for working these out to give me more of a chance in this exam? Thanks.

P.s. Aloges, reply 1, is this any better? I'm using a crappy keyboard

It's really hard to figure out what you're asking when you use slang, bad punctuation and spelling and oddball abbreviations. Second, your final exam is going to include Pythagoras' theorem? **Lucky** you, unless I got that wrong... |
