Sin and cos. Just use the exponential form.

>>7628032Truth

>>7628032No it's actually useful. Have fun doing prime tests by hand without it buddy.>>7628039Wildeberger pls>>7628042Impossible>>7628043No.

>>7628032The most useless concepts are the concepts that are from the new release papers that haven't been used much yet. Most of the mathematics you learn in kindergarten through to the end of undergrad is all useful in some aspect or another.

>>7628032The division algorithm is very, very, very useful.

>>7628082Adding onto my point. Before the birth of cryptography, number theory was considered recreational, useless maths. However, it is now considered useful.

>>7628032>mathematics >grillWho made this blasphemous picture?

>>7628043>confirmed for never having seen polar form

>>7628241Literally 1/2 the people in mathematics are women.

>>7628246Only if you count middle school math teachers.

Interuniversalstudios chincmemer theory

>>7628251>implying
