I don't actually know of many uses of tangent, but you can graph it using Set Position like I showed earlier Like sine and cosine, tangent takes a value and produces different numbers depending on what that value is so you can use it with a value. It's not limited to just that though but I haven't really come across other uses yet either.
Hi @Periwinkle_Dolphin! Great question, so you see like in the graphs I did for sine, cosine and tangent, I mentioned that they return different values depending on what number you put in. For example, this is a sine graph:
You can see some examples like sin(0°) gives 0, sin(30°) = 1/2, sin(90°) = 1 and so on. Not all numbers aren't nice and neat like that, for example, sin(36.86...°) = 3/5 but those are just examples
Inverse sine is the opposite — if you know that the sine of an angle gives a number, what will that angle be? Say that you know sin(x) = 1 for example. Inverse sin(1) will tell you what x will be, which will be 90 degrees from the graph.
Looking at the graph, if you want to find the sine of something you look along the x-axis and then see what value the curve is at — like for sin(30°), you go to 30° then you see on the purple curve, it is equal to 1/2:
If you want to find the inverse sine of 1/2, you go to 1/2 on the y-axis then look what the degrees value for it is:
Except that since the graph repeats, there are actually lots of values: here the graph shows 30° and 150° since sin(30°) and sin(150°) both give 1/2. Inverse sine will give the number that is in the range from -90° to 90° I think. It is just something to keep in mind and you can use Check Ifs to deal with it like ThinBuffalo showed
