1. what is the easiest way to learn trigonometry because I find it really harddd
2. https://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/trigonometry.html

Best teaching style I've seen. Ignore the last bit with cotangent, because that's further-maths
3. It's a right angle triangle and has side measurements- Pythagoras
It's a right angle triangle but has angles + sides - SOH CAH TOA
Its not a right angle triangle but you have to find the sides or angle - COSINE OR SINE
Cosine - Included angle + 2 sides OR 3 angles
Sine - The opposite to cosine Can't really explain this one to well.
Mathswatch explain this really well.

*sarcastically* WOW. I actually understood all of that despite knowing nothing!

*unsarcasitcally* Kid, if you're going to post a reply, add some effort. If I couldn't make sense with trig, I wouldn't understand a single thing with what you just said.

Seriously try harder with your replies...

Mate, he changed it. And what they wrote wouldn't make sense to someone who doesn't get trig.

Fair enough

I didn't change anything, just added more information on the other topics that include trigonometry. I just summarised the rules you need to remember for the triangles. Anyways, I didn't give this advise to you but to the OP who made this thread, so I don't see why your so quick to judge if it's not helpful. *she
10. alright thanks

Well calling it math not maths is a good way to start an argument

Look at little old SMALLTown getting sassy. I'm totes scared lol. IDC that you advised the OP (lol, OP you're totes OP, must be feeling pretty OP lol), you advised them seriously wrong. They didn't ask for a summary, but an "easy" method of understanding trig. So sit your a*s down girl.

And if you don't want people to get your gender wrong, add it to your profile, so quit getting all worked up with the whole asterisks and stuff. Before you jump to me having no defined gender, I prefer to remain anonymous you little kiddie stalkers are just a pain in the butt.
