atan() - Mathematical Function

How is Mathematical Function "atan()" used in C++?
How to find the arc tangent value of an argument using c++?


atan() is a Mathematical Function that returns the arc tangent for the given argument.

Syntax to find Arc Tangent Value

float atan ( float arg );
double atan ( double arg );
long double atan ( long double arg );

Example :

#include <iostream.h>
#include <cmath.h>
int main ()
cout << "Arc Tangent value of .5 is :: " << atan(.5) ;
return 0;

Result :

Arc Tangent value of .5 is :: 0.463648

In the above example atan() is used to find the arc tangent value for ".5".
