Default Trigonometry existed 3700 years ago

3,700-year-old Babylonian tablet rewrites the history of maths - and shows the Greeks did not develop trigonometry
"The tablet, known as Plimpton 332, was discovered in the early 1900s in Southern Iraq by the American archaeologist and diplomat Edgar Banks, who was the inspiration for Indiana Jones.

The true meaning of the tablet has eluded experts until now but new research by the University of New South Wales, Australia, has shown it is the world’s oldest and most accurate trigonometric table, which was probably used by ancient architects to construct temples, palaces and canals.

However unlike today’s trigonometry, Babylonian mathematics used a base 60, or sexagesimal system, rather than the 10 which is used today. Because 60 is far easier to divide by three, experts studying the tablet, found that the calculations are far more accurate."

So are you actually telling me that it was the Arabs who were Kangz?

On a serious note there is probably a whole plethora of hidden knowledge in those Cuneiform tablets.

If you take the bibles history to be accurate that means that there were advanced civilizations prior to ours, and the Babylonians would've been the first ones after the flood to inherit a lot of the former peoples information.

That's your homey Chollo. He's dying to say the Babylonians stole it from the Egyptians or that they were indeed Egyptian themselves.

From the beginning of time Iraq has been on top, every 40 years Iraq suffers an collapse than a rise, in 2003 the Baath regime collapsed and 40 years exactly before in 1963 they overthrew Abd Al Karim Al Qasim and rose to power, before that in 1920 was the revolution against the Brits and we will rise and grow but I refuse to let the rise be in the hands of the Dawah Party that is owned by the evil Khameni of Iran

The 15 rows on the tablet describe a sequence of 15 right-angle triangles, which are steadily decreasing in inclination.

The left-hand edge of the tablet is broken but the researchers believe t there were originally six columns and that the tablet was meant to be completed with 38 rows.

Plimpton 322 was a powerful tool that could have been used for surveying fields or making architectural calculations to build palaces, temples or step pyramids,” added Dr Mansfield.
So you're basically telling me mofos were walking around with stone ipads in Ancient Babylon.

No surprises there. Not much else to do with your spare time back then. No distractions like television, internet, cell phones, to turn your mind to mush and suck you of your ambition.
