Abstract

Trigonometry is concerned with the solution of triangles using trigonometric functions, and is of immense practical value in all branches of engineering. The earliest rudiments of trigonometry date back to 1900 BC, and there is an Egyptian papyrus (c. 1650 BC) containing trigonometric calculations relating to the pyramids.
