Default coverting answer from Radian mode to degree mode

I am trying to convert answers from the radian mode that my system is
currently in, to giving all my answers in degree mode, is it possible. I have
tried the =degree but that is not giving me the answer I am looking for.

What i am trying to find for example is:

In radian mode that what the system is currently
giving me but
=cos(1) equals 0.5403 what i want it to give me is the answer
in degree so the answer will
equal cos = .99985

any help would be bloody brillant

XL's trig functions only work in radians, so you need to explicitly
convert degrees to radians. One way:

=COS(RADIANS(1)) ==== 0.999847695
