    Degree --> Radian?

    Ok, in a Degree mode, I have the equation:
    SinA * N1 = SinB * N2

    In this equation A and B are mesures of angles (in degrees). So, they are the variables I have to change in Radian... I guess....??

    How do I transform that equation so VB can read it? (Because VB only reads in Radian).

    Hope this helps:

    To convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by pi/180. To convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/pi.

    It's your program that needs to "read" it, so your code works with it. You simply need to mult/div by pi/180.
