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 
Execute  
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.) See also predefined unit Math.
