Is there a INVERTED SINUS function in C++ (Visual C++) ?? I mean instead of me giving the angle as parameter I give a number and receive the angle.

it''s in there, if you''re looking for an inversion of the sine function.

I automatically searched through the math.h file with the following search words: INV, SINI, ISIN etc...

Nothing was found...

Actually, the inverted function of the sin function is the arcsin or asin function. So try looking for asin.

Okay, I just looked it up. It''s the asin function.

stevenmarky:

An inverse trig function takes a value as it''s parameter, and returns the angle. So,



// using degrees

sin(45) = 0.7071
asin(0.7071) = 45



Same deal with cos/acos, and tan/atan. They have an ''a'' in front, because they are called arc-sine, arc-cosine, and arc-tangent.
