Is there a way to make Spotlight return the sin-1, cos-1, or tan-1 of a given number without opening Calculator.app?

asin(x), acos(x), and atan(x) work for me. Spotlight gives the results in radians and will not show any calculator results if you go out of the domains for these functions.

Edit: If you want the results in degrees instead of radians, use asind(x), acosd(x), and atand(x).

  • Thanks, do you know if there's a way to display degrees instead of radians? – The Kraken Jul 2 '14 at 0:53

    @TheKraken You add "d" to the end to get degrees. For example, acosd(). I didn't know that before but stumbled upon it here: reddit.com/r/apple/comments/1nhdjb – sudo Jul 2 '14 at 1:01
