Dr. Axle, thanks man!


edit: yeah I remember the SOH CAH TOA from high school, just couldn't seem to get it, and using the computer calculator probably didn't help me either. I remembered the sin of a 30 degree angle was .5, yet for some reason my answer wasn't double or half of my known value. I can't wait until Gavin learns this stuff, so I can learn it all over again.
