Contributed by: Paco Jain (Wolfram Research)

ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][x]

computes the inverse sine of x in degrees.

Details and Options

ArcSinDegree is a mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
ArcSinDegree[x] is undefined for x = 0.
ArcCSinDegree[x] is undefined outside the range -1 to 1.
ArcSinDegree[x] always returns a value in the range -90 to 90.
For certain special arguments, ArcSinDegree automatically evaluates to exact values.
ArcSinDegree can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
ArcSinDegree automatically threads over lists.

Examples
