**Sine (angle) = opposite/Hypothenus**is the ratio of the length of 2 sides in the triangle. However something i never understood and REALLY want to understand is. When you type in some angle in

**degree**in a calculator like

**sin(14,123221)**the calculator spits out a ratio that matches that angle with many descimal points. How can the calculator do this so exact and with so many descimal points? I wouldn't believe that people who invented the sine function manually put in all these values into the calculator, so there must be an underlying mathenmatical equation built into the sine function that converts each degree into specific ratio. What is this equation?

I'd really appreciate some help on this one :)
