$opposite= 295; $hyp= 375.298547826; $sinx= $opposite/ $hyp; $x= asin($sinx);
This gives me an answer of 1.10573218834 when it should give me an answer of ~51.813
Is there a setting in php.ini i need to change? The script is being run on a linux server and running the latest version of PHP.
Any help is appreciated.
P.S: How do I use the php tags which colour the code. I haven't been able to find them.
EDIT: I managed to solve my own problem. (For anyone with a similiar problem) the answer is that asin always returns in radians therefore you need to use rad2deg() to convert the angle into degrees.
