I have 2 questions:
1) I just noticed that the trig functions in Qbasic are not accurate or correct. For example the true sine of 45 degrees is .707... but when I ask that sin(45) be displayed it gives .850... Why is this? Am I doing something wrong, or using incorrect syntax? Is this a bug in Qbasic?
2) If question #1
is answered/solved, then what is
the correct syntax or format to get the inverse displayed? (From .707 etc.. back to 45 degrees)?
A book that I have on Qbasic says that the command ATN is available. This should mean that if I enter ATN(.4567) for example, the displayed result should be 24.546... (answer in decimal degrees).
Thanks for any help you can give. --- Lew
