# Inverse Tangent Calculator

The inverse tangent function tan^{-1}(x) is plotted above along the real axis

## What is Inverse Tangent Calculator?

'Cuemath's Inverse Tangent Calculator' is an online tool that helps to calculate the values of the inverse tangent function. This online Inverse Tangent Calculator helps you to calculate the values of the inverse tangent function in a few seconds. If any value x is given, the angle in degrees is calculated for different inverse tan functions. It is denoted by tan^{-1}(x).

## How to Use Inverse Tangent Calculator?

Please follow the steps below to find the values of the inverse tangent function:

**Step 1:**Enter the value x in the given input box.**Step 2:**Click on the**"Calculate"**button to find the values of the inverse tangent function.**Step 3:**Click on the**"Reset"**button to clear the fields and find the values of the inverse tangent function.

## How to Find Inverse Tangent?

The tangent function is the ratio of the opposite side to the adjacent side. The inverse function of the tangent function is also called arctan. The function is represented by “arctan x” or tan^{-1}x.

**Solved Example:**

Find the inverse tangent value if the x = 1

**Solution:**

Given x = 1

tan^{-1}(1) = 45°

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the inverse tangent values for the following:

- x = 1/2
- x = -1
