Sin[30*Degree] vs Sin[29*Degree]

What is happening here:

which makes it appear that only the first line of input works?

However, if I do something like:

\!\(Sin[\(29*Pi\)\/180. ]\)

I get the expected result ... I'm sure it is me, what am I missing in that I 
think I am not seeing consistent behavior?

Thanks in advance,
