Math Operation

Select from the ten math or trigonometric operations available.

 

Sin - Sine

Cos - Cosine

Tan - Tangent

ArcSin - ArcSine

ArcCos - ArcCosine

ArcTan - ArcTangent

Abs - Absolute number

Power - Multiply a number by the nth power, such as 2 to the 10th power.

Min - Selects the smaller of two values.

Max - Selects the larger of two values.

 

 

Note: The trigonometric functions require that the values be in radians  -  (Angle x Pi)/180 = Radians. In most cases, the resulting values of the trigonometric operations will be decimal values.

ArcSin and ArcCos values must be input as integers between 1 and (-1). Otherwise an error message will result.

 

 

Destination Value

Select the variable to store the value of the math operation performed. This variable stores the result of the math operation.

 

 

Value #1

Set the value or select a variable to be used in the math operation.

 

 

Value #2

Set the value or select a variable to be used in the math operation. This is only available for a few of the above operations, those that require two values.
