### Convert Result to Degrees

To convert the result from radians to degrees, multiply the result by 180/PI() or use the DEGREES function. For example, to convert the result of ASIN(0.5) to degrees, you can use either formula below:

### Explanation

The graph of ASIN visualizes the output of the function from -1 to 1. ASIN is the inverse of SIN. However, because SIN is a periodic function, the output of ASIN is limited to the range from -π/2 to π/2.

### Notes

ASIN is the inverse of SIN To convert the result from radians to degrees multiply by 180/PI() or use the DEGREES function.
