I don't know what it hasn't posted to the list yet, but 5 minutes after 
my previous message, I sent a follow up message saying that I'd solved 
the problem.

The formula requires that the angle to be expressed in radians rather 
than in degrees. Once I made that conversion then rounded the output 
to 2 decimal places, it suited my needs perfectly.

Thanks again to everyone for helping! I'll show off the results sometime
soon. :) 


P.S. It's not actually of a robotic nature, but I'm sure the technique 
could be applied to robotics somehow. :)
