## Common Mistakes

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

### Providing a non-complex number as input

The `IMTANH` function requires a complex number as input. Double check that the input is a complex number.

### Providing invalid syntax

Make sure the syntax of the function call is correct, including the use of parentheses and the proper placement of commas.

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

• `IMTAN`

Calculates the inverse of the tangent of a number in radians. The resulting angle is returned in radians. This function is most commonly used in engineering calculations that involve angular measurements.
