Problem 1:Mirrors
There are two ways to solve this problem. The first idea of this problem is
that light incident from toe can be received from the eye after reflected by
planar mirror.
The light path is shown i

Problem 1
Using MATLAB, we can plot the percentage error for sin() and cos(). The
result is shown in fig1 and fig2. We use the equation:
