If I travel A distance north, and B distance west, then can I find the distance I traveled (c) by doing cos(a+b)? I think that cos serves some sort of a purpose in finding the distance C, but I just can't figure it out. Can someone please help me out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
