    My maths is rusty, but I was under the impression that sin, cos, tan, cot, sec & csc were always functions of angles.

    Could be radians as well? In which case my calculator gives it as -0.98803...

    He would have to state radians though. I'm with Neil on this one. I thought that sin30 implies degrees.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Er, yes, but the sine of it is different...as 30 radians converts into 30 * 180 / 2pi degrees
