COMMENTS

180*atan(n)/Pi is an exact integer only for n = 0 and n = 1 (and n = -1). a(n) = 90 for n >= 115.

Also, for n>0, rounded value of the angle at O=(0,0) of a triangle OPQ with P=(n,0) and Q=(n,n^2). - M. F. Hasler, Oct 07 2012

FORMULA

For all integers n, a(n) = round(180*atan(n)/Pi) = -a(-n), where a negative term represents a fourth-quadrant angle. Terms shown are only for n >= 0.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 45 degrees as that is the first-quadrant angle with tan(45 deg) = 1. a(3) = 72 degrees as 180*atan(3)/Pi = 71.5650... and 71.5650... rounded to the nearest integer is 72. (Method is .5000... rounds up.)

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = round(180*atan(n)/Pi)
