How would you, to the best of your abilities, explain to someone like me how trigonometry functions emerged? I'm not in any way or form an advanced mathematics student and in this specific subject I only know the basics of the very basics (i.e how to find the sides and angles of right triangles). I should also inform you that I have already researched in wikipedia and many other web sources. To my discontent appreciation, none of the websites have presented me with straight forward answers. Hence why I choose to finally succumb and consult the professionals of this magnificent website.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Not only do I very politely beg you to provide me with web links that concerns about the history of trigonometry functions but also, and more importantly should I mention, how the values of each individual trigonometry function was devised.

Thanking you in advance
