# Tangent Calculator

Tangent is defined as a line or plane that intersects a curve or a curved surface at exactly one point.

## What is Tangent Calculator?

'Cuemath's Tangent Calculator' is an online tool that helps to calculate the tangent value for a given angle theta. This Tangent Calculator helps you to calculate the tangent value for a given angle theta in a few seconds.

## How to Use Tangent Calculator?

Please follow the steps below to find the tangent value for a given angle theta:

**Step 1:**Enter the angle theta (in degrees) in the given input box.**Step 2:**Click on the**"Calculate"**button to find the tangent value for a given angle theta.**Step 3:**Click on the**"Reset"**button to clear the fields and find the tangent value for the different angles.

## How to Find Tangent Ratio?

The tangent function is defined as the ratio of the length of the opposite side to that of the length of the adjacent side in a right-angled triangle. The sign is a trigonometric function of an angle. It is denoted as tanθ, where θ is the angle between the two sides.

**Solved Example:**

Find the tangent value if the θ = 45°

**Solution:**

Given θ = 45°

tan 45° = 1

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

- θ = 60°
- θ = 150°
