I am relatively new to the concepts of trigonometry but have stumbled upon a problem. Is there an actual method to determine values of sine, cosine and tangent without using calculators?

I mean angles under 180 degrees. I am asking for the actual method or formula to determine the values.Log in to reply

it depends on what values are you searching. Some values like 30, 45, 60, 18, 36, 54, 72 and their relatives in the other quafdrants can be determined using basic geometry basic geometry, other ones can be also found using trigonometry relationsLog in to reply

say, like 52 or 18. Do they share a common method?Log in to reply

Well, 30, 45, and 60 are the basic ones. For 52 or 18, look up info about the golden ratio and these numbers.Log in to reply

Similarly, any multiple or half-angle thereof can be found in terms of algebraic expressions.Log in to reply
