TAN function

Description

Tangent function. TAN(x) returns the tangent of the angle x. The argument x must be expressed in radians. To convert degrees to radians you use the RADIANS function.

The tangent can be represented in terms of sine and cosine: $$ \operatorname{tan}(x) = \frac{\operatorname{sin}(x)}{\operatorname{cos}(x)} $$

Example

TAN(PI()/4) equals 1.

TAN(0) equals 0.
