    Matrices related to trignometry and vectors

    Hey guys! I am stack at this problem and not sure how I have to proceed, in the first part, when it says find the matrix for that rotation , does it mean from Q to P? do I find that by writing a trigonometric function of that and put it in an augmented matrix form? B part...no clue.., C) is ok...

    need help "stretching" a line and ending on a specific angle against axis

    Here's a problem I assumed would be easy, but it has melted my brain for a long time and I am not really sure anymore. So I am using cos and sin to draw round curves in a program (it's okay that it's slow). You specify an x length, y length, and angle1 and angle2 with the axises you want the...

    3D Trignometry problem - how to calculate the Horizontal distance?

    Refer to the (very ordinary) 3d diagram below. Formulae required to determine HD. Slope Distance (SD), angles and dH are measureable. A 3d soulition is required with no approximations, if possible.

    Simpler way to graph multiple trig. functions?

    hey everybody, hope you enjoying maths :) so in class we are graphing functions like this: y = 3cos2x + 2sin3x + 1 and we are supposed to draw 3cos2x and 2sin3x + 1 separately than add their y-values at certain x-values to get the first function. This is sometimes painstaking and very...
