I am trying to calculate the coordinates at the end of a line. The length
and angle of the line are given and I am using the following formula:

The following are sample answers in the format (x, y) to the given
length/angle values of the line:

120/0 = (0.0, 25.0)
120/89 = (24.9961923789, 0.436310160932)
120/90 = (25.0, 1.53075794228e-15)
120/91 = (24.9961923789, -0.436310160932)

Why am I getting a string number instead of the expected answer for 120/90
which should be (25.0, 0.0). This happens at all multiples of 90 (i.e. 180
and 270)

from math import sin, cos, radians # etc etc

.... easier to write, easier to read.
