SIN

Function Type:

This function works on real or complex numbers only.

Function Purpose:

The function will return the value of sine for the given angle ( where the angle must be in radians to the proper value )

Required Arguments:

sin (x)

Where x must be an argument of type REAL or COMPLEX.

Note: The angle x must be in radians for the function to output the value of sine that you want.

Results:

To get the value of sine for a thirty degree angle: pi = 3.1415926 x = 30*pi/180 (Remember you need the angle in radians) y = sin(x) Which will naturally give you the result that y equals 0.5.
