 sumpta TRWBW: http://rafb.net/p/6IWFtj83.html is my workTRWBW: the law of cosines is the next chapter in my book TRWBW sumpta: sin(180-x)=sin(x)sumpta: but not sure what you are doing here, let me look again WILDSTYLE Hi. thermoplyae What happened to all your caps? WILDSTYLE Something seemed a bit off! sumpta TRWBW: ah, I figured it out. .441035 corresponds to two degrees, one being 26.17 degrees and the other 180 - 26.17TRWBW: the latter allows me to get the proper degree measure for gamma in the smaller triangleTRWBW: which allows me to find the smaller distance TRWBW sumpta: yeahsumpta: if you look at the picture, the triangle made by the sun and the two potential positions of venus is isoscelles, so the interior angles are the same. another way to see why the two gammas are 180-x of each other Mulder http://xkcd.com/c263.html Cecen Can a TI92 do anti-derivatives? masquerade Cecen, yes Cecen Explain? :] masquerade 2nd-7 Cecen Oh crap, I didn't even notice masquerade its also under the Calc menu Multiply Hi, I've got 400 points from 0 to 400, and another 100 points, from 100 to 200... If 100 is in point 0, and 200 in point 400, how do i find out where point 150 is in? I know it would be in point 200, but how do I calculate it?Anyone? Cecen O-oI don't understand. Multiply Take a look at this: http://juhp.dk:82/andet/bmi/bmi.phpWhat I wan't is to make point 0 to be showing as 100, as the lowest value, and point 400, to be shown as 200... Currently, it's counted as pixels, means this char is 400 pixels high.The problem is, that the original pixel points, the min value, and the max value, can be changed dynamically. Cecen You mean it's like the window on a graphing calculator? You want to change the origin/scaling? Multiply Kind of, yes. Cecen So originally, the points are between 0 and 400. You want to scale all the points down, so they're in 100 and 200? Multiply Yes. Cecen Are you programming this? Multiply Yup. Cecen C++? Multiply PHP Cecen No idea how to use PHP, but: Multiply If I could get a function or such, it'll be easy to do. Cecen Actually I'll private you it Multiply Okay. Cecen Is the original 400 and 0 static or dynamic? Multiply Dynamic
