Small Angle Approximations and Skinny Triangles are concepts which simplify trigonometric calculations. The concept is based on right-angle or isosceles triangles where one side is very small compared to the other two. In these cases, some approximations can be made in place of trigonometric calculations, which may be used for estimations when information required to […]

The lattice multiplication method is a way of multiplying two numbers in a simple, concise form. It works a lot like the traditional method taught in schools but can be easier and faster for multiplying large numbers. Let’s go through it step by step, using the example of 64 x 17: 1) Draw a box, […]
