Is known that in every rectangle triangle the following relationships are true:
But, how use geometrically the function sinh, cosh, and tanh?

This article gives one geometric interpretation of sinh and cosh:

Look these formulas:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipti...sic_definition I don't understand because x and y are equals to these expressions.

This last one was said best. Trigonometry is Geometry based on a unit circle. Hyperbolic sines and cosines are based on the unit hyperbola. Study the hyperbola and the exponential and logarithmic functions based on the Euler number base.

I already studied and I continue don't understand how use it
