# atand

Inverse tangent in degrees

## Syntax

``Y = atand(X)``

## Description

example

````Y = atand(X)` returns the inverse tangent (tan-1) of the elements of `X` in degrees. The function accepts both real and complex inputs. For real values of `X`, `atand(X)` returns values in the interval [-90, 90].For complex values of `X`, `atand(X)` returns complex values. ```

## Examples

collapse all

```x = [-50 -20 0 20 50]; y = atand(x)```
```y = 1×5 -88.8542 -87.1376 0 87.1376 88.8542 ```

The `atand` operation is element-wise when you pass a vector, matrix, or N-D array.

`atand(10+i)`
```ans = 84.3450 + 0.5618i ```

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Tangent of angle, specified as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array. The `atand` operation is element-wise when `X` is non-scalar.

Data Types: `single` | `double`
Complex Number Support: Yes

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Angle in degrees, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array of the same size as `X`.
