sumpta | TRWBW: http://rafb.net/p/6IWFtj83.html is my work TRWBW: 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 - 26.17 TRWBW: the latter allows me to get the proper degree measure for gamma in the smaller triangle TRWBW: which allows me to find the smaller distance |

TRWBW | sumpta: yeah sumpta: 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 |

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-o I don't understand. |

Multiply | Take a look at this: http://juhp.dk:82/andet/bmi/bmi.php What 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 |
