# math.atan2

From Garry's Mod

## Contents |

# Description

atan2 functions like math.atan(y / x), except it also takes into account the quadrant of the angle and so doesn't have a limited range of output.

NOTE |
The Y argument comes first! |

# Arguments

number y

Y coordinate.

# Arguments

number x

X coordinate.

# Returns

The angle of the line from (0, 0) to (x, y) in radians, in the range -pi to pi.

# Examples

## Example

atan( 1 ) and atan2( 1, 1 ) are both math.pi / 4

atan2( -1, -1 ) equals to ( (-3) * math.pi ) / 4

print( atan( 1 ) ) print( ata2( 1, 1 ) ) print( atan2( -1, -1 ) )
