Help With Pyth And Trig.

Sun Apr 22, 2007 10:43 pm

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  silly

First of all, please rewrite your question in the language you'd use in a written exam. It's really hard to figure out what you're asking when you use slang, bad punctuation and spelling and oddball abbreviations.  Wink Second, your final exam is going to include Pythagoras' theorem? Lucky you, unless I got that wrong...
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

This link will explain the very basics of the theorem, my nest of vipers could probably work her way to understanding it this way and she aint the brightest light on the tree  box
