Hello everyone! 

So, I was trying to calculate some things and I needed to do arcsin(0.4).
And it gave me an error.
If I was a regular calculator, the answer is 22.795 degrees.

Can somebody help me, please?
Thank you

Hi, Andrew.  My build returns 23.57817847820183110402 which I believe is the correct result.  What version of SpeedCrunch are you using?  Also, please confirm your Angle Unit (in Settings) is set to Degree.

The issue might be that your calculator is set to output the angle in radians instead of degrees. To convert radians to degrees, you multiply by .

So, first, let's calculate arcsin(0.4) in radians:

Then, to convert it to degrees:

So, the answer to arcsin(0.4) is approximately .

If your calculator doesn't give you the option to switch between radians and degrees, you might need to do the conversion manually as shown above.
