If the tangent of X = 1/2, what is X?

Hi donbreuner: To solve your problem, you must use the inverse tangent function. In many cases, this is written as atan() or arctan(). There's a nifty calculator on the following page that shows that: atan(1/2) = .4636 radians = 26.565 degrees.

The Google calculator is even niftier, as it supports plain English. No special URL is required, just use the standard Google search box.. A google search for: atan(1/2) returns: atan(1 / 2) = 0.463647609 typing in: atan (1/2) in degrees returns: atan(1 / 2) = 26.5650512 degrees Simple as that!
