The purpose of this paper is to deduce an analytical expression for the violation of Bell's inequality by quantum theory and plane trigonometry, and expound the violation and maximal violation of the first, second type Bell's inequality in detail. Further, we find out the sufficient conditions for the region in which Bell's inequalities are violated.
