Well said, trig serves me well on a regular basis; I always keep my scientific calculator in my tool bag I use it so often.just remember this SOHCAHDOA.

Not that its completely related but 3 or 4 years ago I was working on a custom house that was built curving around a tree. The handrail installer was told it was a 400(or something like that) foot radius. To properly make his curve he explained how he went into an empty parking lot with 400 feet of string and a piece of wood and a pencil, and drew an arc on the wood....All I could think was I guess he did not do well with calculus.:whistling
To clarify for some who might not be familiar with the Indian Princess mnemonic it's SohCahToa, not SohCahDoa.I never had a problem with trig, just remember this SOHCAHDOA. Except I've never had to use trig when I'm actually out framing. The most complex math I ever did framing was the arch formula.
R = (B² + A²)/2A
Oops yeah, I never could remember the Indian mnemonic. I use some old horse came a hopin through our alley. Was thinking down instead of through.To clarify for some who might not be familiar with the Indian Princess mnemonic it's SohCahToa, not SohCahDoa.
This is a way to remember how to get the Sine, the Cosine and the Tangent
Sine = Oposite over hypotenuse
Cosine = Adjacent over hypotenuse
Tangent = Opposite over adjacent
Looks like it is true.That's not true. Maybe it is where your from. I still find it hard to believe that alot of framers don't stick frame.
