Why is it when I type in cos(60)*8 is gives me 7.6193038 when the cos of 60 is 0.5 and 0.5*8=4

cos (60 radians)

That does not work the word radians comes up in red letters

The formula is using radian's not degrees.

I have it set on degrees and not radian on the edit unit and the Equations dialog box and it still uses radian

If you do not see the same thing as my screen shot(s) below, it might be a bug and it should be reported to your VAR if you have one.

I honestly don't change this setting and use radian's in my equations. But changing the settings works on my end.

I wasn't putting the = sign on it I guess that makes a difference on cos it doesn't on other math
