Many of us often complain that the lessons we learnt back in school, especially advanced mathematics, are not useful in day-to-day life. However, a Twitter user has now proved otherwise as he took the help of trigonometry for calculating a woman's height. It all started when a Twitter user, Pallavi Pandey, uploaded a photo of herself on the micro-blogging website, asking users to guess her height. Within hours it prompted a series of responses from people, including this man who used trigonometry to solve the problem.
Ms Pandey shared an image on her handle on Monday. The picture showed her dressed in an all-black attire standing in front of a flight of stairs. Alongside the image, Ms Pandey wrote, "Guess my height!"

Mr Pandey's tweet instantly took the internet by storm. In the comment section, while several users played the guessing game, one user, who goes by Mr Nobody, stepped up and used trigonometry to guess the woman's height. "Looks like 5' 4.5". But now I am curious," the user wrote. He also shared an image to show his calculations.

Ms Pandey was utterly surprised by the user's effort. She replied to his tweet too and shared that she is taller than the height he calculated but also praised him for his attempt. "Hats off to you, man for efforts, but I'm way taller, but wow!!!" she wrote. "Dude put an end to 'another day of not using trigonometry after class 10 in real life," she jokingly added.

"Bro never thought that trigonometry would make him this famous," said another. "This is pure gold! Solid stuff!!" commented third.
