Can someone tell me (or help me find) the derivation of the pythagorean theorem, and the laws of sin,cos, and tangent. I know the first is a derivation of the low of cosins, but I'd like to know if theres a writeout as to how he actually came up with those results.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
