# ACOTH

The `ACOTH` function returns the hyperbolic arccotangent of a number. It is the inverse function of the hyperbolic cotangent. This function is useful in trigonometry and calculus.

## Usage

Use the `ACOTH` formula with the syntax shown below, it has 1 required parameter:

Parameters:
1. value (required):
The numeric value for which you want to calculate the hyperbolic arccotangent. Must be a non-zero number.

## Examples

Here are a few example use cases that explain how to use the `ACOTH` formula in Google Sheets.

### Calculate the hyperbolic arccotangent of a number

Use the `ACOTH` function to calculate the hyperbolic arccotangent of a given number.

### Calculate the area under a hyperbolic cosine function

Use the `ACOTH` function to calculate the area under a hyperbolic cosine function.

### Calculate the derivative of a hyperbolic tangent function

Use the `ACOTH` function to calculate the derivative of a hyperbolic tangent function.

## Common Mistakes

`ACOTH` not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the `ACOTH` Google Sheets Formula:

### Using a value of zero

The input value for `ACOTH` must not be zero. This will result in a #DIV/0! error.

### Providing non-numeric input

The input value for `ACOTH` must be a numeric value. Providing non-numeric input will result in a #VALUE! error.

The following functions are similar to `ACOTH` or are often used with it in a formula:

• `ATANH`

The `ATANH` function returns the inverse hyperbolic tangent of a value. It is commonly used in mathematical calculations involving hyperbolic functions.

• `ACOS`

The `ACOS` function returns the arccosine of a value, which is the angle in radians whose cosine is the specified value. The function is often used in trigonometry to find the angle of a right triangle given the adjacent and hypotenuse. The value parameter must be a number between -1 and 1.

• `ASINH`

The `ASINH` function returns the inverse hyperbolic sine of a number. It is a mathematical function that can be used in a variety of applications such as calculating the surface area of a hyperbolic paraboloid. The result of the function is in radians.
