# Creating Key Figures – Trigonometric Operators

Hello,

This is the last one blog post about key figures operators and it will talk about the Trigonometric ones. 🙂

If you want to check another available operators, please check the blog posts below:

### Trigonometric Operators in your system

• ACOS
• ASIN
• COS
• COSH
• SIN
• SINH
• TAN
• TANH

I’m going to provide with a practical example on the operators. Please consider the formulas used and change their values as below:

ValueOrKeyFigure1 = Confirmed Quantity

After the explanation of each Trigonometric Operator, you will find a table with example of possible results based on the provided values and formulas.

ACOS

Returns the arc-cosine, in radians, of the numeric argument between -1 and 1. It will result in error in case the provided argument is not any between -1 and 1.

Example: ACOS(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

ASIN

It calculates the arcsine (i.e. the inverse sine) of a given number, and returns an angle, in radians, between -π/2 and π/2.

Example: ASIN(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

COS

The COS function returns the cosine of angle given in radians.

Example: COS(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

COSH

Returns the hyperbolic cosine of a number.

Example: COSH(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

SIN

Returns the sine of an angle.

Example: SIN(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

SINH

Returns the hyperbolic sine of an angle.

Example: SINH(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

TAN

Returns the tangent of an angle.

Example: TAN(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

TANH

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of an angle.

Example: TANH(“ValueOrKeyFigure1”)

### Table with examples for Trigonometric Operators I hope you all have been able to understand a bit more on Trigonometric Operators. If you have any doubt, please do not hesitate on commenting them below. 🙂

• Hi Elise,

thank your for this post, but it is very condensed.

Could you describe the business context and business case in a little bit more detail?

Thank you very much!

Best Regards

Carsten
