Hipparchus is the father of trigonometry.
Angles were known before trigonometry. Trigonometry was the study of angles and their relationship to shapes.
based on my stock knowledge, i think hipparchus is the father of trigonometry.....
I should imagine that his parents discovered him!
Because he was credited with working out the mathematics behind it.
Hipparchus of Nicaea, (190 BC to 120 BC).
Hipparchus is considered as the father of trigonometry. he was the one who found the relation between angles of a triangle and its lengths of sides. this relation has developed into an entirely new branch in mathematics as trigonometry. so, one might as well say that he 'made' trigonometry.
Hipparchus of Nicaea, 190 BC to 120 BC.
Hipparchus was best known for many things. One of them, he invented trigonometry.
