    Axioms of Sinus

    Sinus is defined as the opposite side divide by hypotenuse.

    What are the axioms that definition is base on?

    I would say the underlying axioms are the axioms of Euclidean Geometry. But I don't see how the definition of the sine of an angle is based on any axioms itself. It is just a definition.

    From watching your postings, I can see that you are lazy as far as looking for yourself.
    So read this for yourself.
