Hipparchus is the father of trigonometry.
The main kinds are plane trigonometry and solid trigonometry. The latter will include trigonometry in hyper-spaces.
Hipparchus is the father of trigonometry and he was a Greek astronomer who lived between 190-120 B.C. He is considered as the father of trigonometry, a branch of mathematics which studies the angles of sides of triangles. :)
based on my stock knowledge, i think hipparchus is the father of trigonometry.....
The main part of trigonometry is the study of triangles on spheres. Also, another part of trigonometry is the constant positive curvature.
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.
