Summary:

In Multiplan Versions 1.x, 2.x, 3.x, 4.00, 4.01, and 4.20 trigonometric functions use radians rather than degrees as a measure of angles. Degrees can be converted to radians by multiplying degrees by Pi (3.14159265358979) and then dividing the result by 180.

For example, to obtain the sine of 60 degrees, use the following equation:

SIN(60*PI()/180)

Other trigonometric functions that require radians as a measure of angles include ATAN, COS, and TAN.
