A to Z of Excel Functions: the ATANH Function
12 September 2016
Welcome back to our regular A to Z of Excel Functions blog. Today we look at the ATANH function.
The ATANH function
It’s time to talk a complete load of hyperbolics. The ATANH function returns the inverse hyperbolic tangent of a number (“number”). This number must be between -1 and 1 (excluding -1 and 1). The inverse hyperbolic tangent is the value whose hyperbolic tangent is number, so ATANH(TANH(number)) must equal number.
The ATANH function employs the following syntax to operate:
The ATANH function contains only one argument:
- number: this is required and should be any real number between 1 and -1, not including the two extremities.
Please see my example below:
