Hello Udit, We cannot say which single person discovered Trigonometry. Its history spans thousands of years back. The ancient Egyptians and Babylonians knew about trigonometry. However; it wasn't until the Greeks, when Trigonometry was started to be used more often.The three main figures in the development of Greek trigonometry are Hipparchus, Menelaus, and Ptolomy .
