This College Senior Calculated The Angle Of Her Dab

By Taylor Lang - Sep 07 2016

Annika, 20, is a college senior at Regents University. She is just like most college students, except for the fact that she likes math. She is even studying biophysical sciences with a minor in business. According to NY Mag, while waiting for her professor, she decided to calculate the exact angle of the dab she had just captured on her camera.

"I noticed how straight my arms were,” she told NY Mag via Twitter DM. “Honestly, the first thing I thought was just ‘I wonder what the angle of this is?’”

Pulling out a ruler, she made some simple trigonometric calculations to find the angle of her dab. After tweeting it, she got over 25,000 retweets as it went viral.

This is definitely how you can use math in everyday situations.
