I figured there way an intuitive way to do this that did not require a calculator. That being said, this doesn't require calculus, and only the most basic of trig, algebra and geometry. This is exactly what I was looking for.
This math nerd gives you a double thumbs up. Now I simply need to get through that logic text and advanced trig to understand the thinking process that went into this. I am impressed. Thank you.
