I was wondering exactly what sine is. i know that the relationship between sine and the angle is expressed as sinx=opposite/hypotoneuse. But is sine somekind of constant you multiply the angle with to get the O/H ratio? How did the people calculate the ratios without calculaters when they only knew the angles?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
