Period of a function

Hi,

What will be the period of the function:

$\displaystyle f(x)=\left ( \sin x \right )^{\circ}$

Thanks.

Math Focus: Yet to find out.
What's the degree symbol for? And what do you think the period will be..

It was in a book. If it is zero, then period is indeterminate and if degree, then 2pi.

Thx.

Did the book give $\displaystyle f(x) = \left (\sin x^\circ\right)$?

Okay. In that case, it's a degree symbol (a zero looks slightly different) and the period is 2$\pi$.
Thanks from happy21
