There is a space between WriteLine and (b)
You must remove the space for it to work, like this : TextWindow.WriteLine(b)

AshkoreDracson, this is completely untrue! Small Basic accepts blank spaces almost anywhere!
Even TextWindow . WriteLine ( b ) is valid!!!
In SB, most of its operations and properties demand an object (or class) typed before them.
For example, TextWindow is written before WriteLine(), because the method/operation WriteLine() belongs to the class/object TextWindow.
In the BasicAl's case above, all mathematics methods belong to the class Math. So, b=cos(a) has to be b=Math.Cos(a).

You also must use Math.GetRadians so that Small Basic can process the sine easier!
For example, for your code, you would have to write it like this:
a = 5 b = Math.Cos(Math.GetRadians(a)) TextWindow.WriteLine(b)Does this help?
