Question: Any codes for designing a scientific calculater in
There are the Sin()
(tangent) and Log() (logarithm) functions that you could use. E.g:
var2 ^ 2
var1 = 10
var2 ^ var3
var2 ^ (1 / var3)
If I have missed something out, tell me what and I will try and
find out how it works.

Comments: lol i tried to use the inverse functions, but they just dont match the
results i get from a calculator... i mean arcsin(0.5) should be 30, but i
keep getting something like 0.4 or some decimal... and its never over 1
O_o can u tell me whats wrong??? ty~
The following code should help you to work out sine and inverse sine.
First, create two buttons - cmdSine and cmdInvSine and then enter the
Dim pi As
Private Sub Form_Load()
pi = 4 * Atn(1)
Private Sub cmdSine_Click()
x = 30
x = x * pi / 180
x = Sin(x)
Private Sub cmdInvSine_Click()
x = 0.5
x = Atn(x / Sqr(-x * x + 1))
x = x * 180 / pi
Pi is calculated in Form_Load. As mentioned in the MSDN library:
The Sin function takes an angle and returns the ratio of two
sides of a right triangle. The ratio is the length of the side opposite
the angle divided by the length of the hypotenuse.
The result lies in the range -1 to 1.
To convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by pi/180. To
convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/pi.
Therefore, to get the same result as a calculator for the Sin function,
the number must first be converted into radians by multiplying it by pi
and then dividing by 180.
For inverse sine, the result of the function from the 'Derived Math
Functions' page of the MSDN library for calculating inverse sine must be
multiplied by 180 and then divided by pi.
The Cos and Tan functions should work in the same way and inversely by
using the appropriate function from the 'Derived Math Functions' page of
the MSDN library (see further down this page).

Final Requirement in Info Tech. we have been researching but do not have the idea about the codes.. and imagine we're going to submit ti this week.. here's the
1. Create a program that will execute the calculator as shown below. Instead of the basic mathematical operators shown in the calculator below, change them to calculate square root, and conversions to hexadecimal and octal, and the factorial.
2. The program uses arrays, specifically using index for the buttons of numbers, index for the buttons of the square root, hexadecimal and octal, and the factorial.
3. The edit menu is left not to function.
4. The calculator can be executed at the desktop.

Comments: what function can i formulate to get the Arctan and arcos?
The following is available from the MSDN Library and should help you:
The following is a list of nonintrinsic math functions that can be derived from the intrinsic math functions:
Sec(X) = 1 / Cos(X)
Cosec(X) = 1 / Sin(X)
Cotan(X) = 1 / Tan(X)
Arcsin(X) = Atn(X / Sqr(-X * X + 1))
Arccos(X) = Atn(-X / Sqr(-X * X + 1)) + 2 * Atn(1)
Arcsec(X) = Atn(X / Sqr(X * X – 1)) + Sgn((X) – 1) * (2 * Atn(1))
Arccosec(X) = Atn(X / Sqr(X * X - 1)) + (Sgn(X) – 1) * (2 * Atn(1))
Arccotan(X) = Atn(X) + 2 * Atn(1)
HSin(X) = (Exp(X) – Exp(-X)) / 2
HCos(X) = (Exp(X) + Exp(-X)) / 2
HTan(X) = (Exp(X) – Exp(-X)) / (Exp(X) + Exp(-X))
HSec(X) = 2 / (Exp(X) + Exp(-X))
HCosec(X) = 2 / (Exp(X) – Exp(-X))
HCotan(X) = (Exp(X) + Exp(-X)) / (Exp(X) – Exp(-X))
Inverse Hyperbolic Sine
HArcsin(X) = Log(X + Sqr(X * X + 1))
Inverse Hyperbolic Cosine
HArccos(X) = Log(X + Sqr(X * X – 1))
Inverse Hyperbolic Tangent
HArctan(X) = Log((1 + X) / (1 – X)) / 2
Inverse Hyperbolic Secant
HArcsec(X) = Log((Sqr(-X * X + 1) + 1) / X)
Inverse Hyperbolic Cosecant
HArccosec(X) = Log((Sgn(X) * Sqr(X * X + 1) + 1) / X)
Inverse Hyperbolic Cotangent
HArccotan(X) = Log((X + 1) / (X – 1)) / 2
Logarithm to base N
LogN(X) = Log(X) / Log(N)
You can see the above here:
