Hello,

Wondering if someone can help. I am trying to convert an excel formula into a PHP string to calculate the value.

FORMULA:   =-0.91*(SIN(0.79/2))^3  which gives the answer -0.05  which is correct.
PHP:  echo -0.91*(sin(0.79/2))^3;   gives me an answer of 3.

Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of what I might be doing wrong.  I have check and SIN is support in php.

Regards
Ben

You cannot use ^3 and need to use the pow() function.
