In geometry and trigonometry, a right angle is an angle of 90 degrees. Throughout history carpenters and masons have known a quick way to confirm if an angle is a true "right angle."
It is based on the most widely known Pythagorean triple (3, 4, 5) and so called the "Rule of 3-4-5." From the angle in question, running a straight line along one side exactly three units in length,
and along the second side exactly four units in length, will create a hypotenuse (the longer line opposite the right angle which connects the two measured endpoints) of exactly 5 units in length. This
measurement can be made quickly and without technical instruments.
So why the extra 3 degrees? It was Wernher von Braun, said to be the preeminent rocket engineer of the 20th century, who discovered that slight erroneous calculations in the targeting of missiles had the unexpected benefit of delivering the required acceleration to accurately reach targets.
This led to missile technology being altered to initially follow a deviated flight path and then include flight correction for the missile to hit it's mark.
At Ninety Three Degrees we believe in going beyond the right-angle or best practice to ensure that our clients achieve their strategic goals accurately.
In Greek numerology, ninety-three is the value of the word “thelema,” or “will”. It means to find out what your true will is, your purpose in life, and then do only those things that will lead to achieving this goal.
We at Ninety Three Degrees believe in applying this philosophy of self discovery to the operations of business by implementing practical and measurable solutions. Our consultants are passionate about focussing on and assisting businesses in prospering through achievement.
