|arctand||arctangent function (degrees)|
|Syntax|| arctand (r : real) : real|
|Description|| The arctand function is used to find the arc tangent of an angle given in degrees. For example, arctand (0) is 0.|
|Example|| This program prints out the arctangent of values from 0 to 3 in degrees.|
for i : 0 .. 12 const arg := i / 4 put "Arc tangent of ", arg, " is ", arctand (arg), " degrees" end for
|See also|| the arcsind and arccosd functions for calculating arcsine and arccosine|
the arctan function which finds the arc tangent of a value with the result given in radians. (2p radians are the same as 360 degrees.)
