# ATAN

### Description

Returns the inverse tangent of a value, in radians.

### Sample Usage

`ATAN(0)`

`ATAN(A5)`

`ATAN(1)`

### Syntax

`ATAN(value)`

`value`

- The value for which to calculate the inverse tangent.

### Notes

The

`DEGREES`

function can be used to convert the result of`ATAN`

into degrees.Because tangent is periodic, there are many solutions to the inverse.

`ATAN`

returns the solution between -Pi/2 and Pi/2.

### Step 1: To use the ATAN Formula, simply begin with your edited Excellentable:

### Step 2: Then begin typing the ATAN formula in the area you would like to display the outcome:

### By adding the values you would like to calculate, Excellentable generates the outcome:
