As the title says; how do I make a movieclip move in a circle, only using actionscript and a premade movieclip?

Since I'm not THAT old, I haven't learned about Sin and Cos, yet - I know I have to use both, though, to get it working.

I've thought about making two functions.

One function, that makes the movieclip move in a half circle ( A -> B -> C)

And another function, that makes it move from C -> D -> A.

So basically;

MC x & y == A

function1:

if MC position == A:

Move MC constant y & increase x

function2:

if MC position == C:

Move MC constant -y & increase -x

I hope I was understandable.

Any hints / help is highly appreciated.
