I'm trying to
calculate the Equation of Time (EoT) to determine the difference

gives a "close enough" EoT9.87xsin(2x360(3-81)÷365)-7.67 x sin(360(3-81)÷365+78.7)=
-4.584625249 (or.... -4 minutes 35.1 seconds...plus or minus)Calc doesn't give the same

returns is: -2.14883666659093Can you tell me what the correct layout of the format in calc is?Thank

Count the '(' and the ')'
=9.87*SIN(RADIANS(2*360*(3-81)/365)-7.67*SIN(RADIANS(360*(3-81)/365+78.7)))
should be
=9.87*SIN(RADIANS(2*360*(3-81)/365))-7.67*SIN(RADIANS(360*(3-81)/365+78.7))
