It is somehow basic knowledge to know that angles add up to 180 degrees one should have seen (and drawn) this triangle in school, but what is it worth to know the degrees? Also, I don't think that trigonometry is important for a politician.<br /><br />I think everybody should know about basic probability (see e.g. http://martin-thoma.com/why-everybody-should-know-about-conditional-probability/ ) and perhaps logic.Martin Thomahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13629221699214248094noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3722233.post-74655435432493076202013-08-12T11:11:18.122-05:002013-08-12T11:11:18.122-05:00Well, the answer is very simple: I don't know ...Well, the answer is very simple: I don't know since I don't have a governor.
