# Inverted Sin, How ?

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. I looked trough math.h but could not find it there... -- Look at you hacker. A Pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors.

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.

?why? -(sin) is the INVERTED SINUS function, right?
Or am I just confused..?

stevenmarky:

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

// using degreessin(45) = 0.7071asin(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.
