# JavaScript: Calculate degrees between 2 points with inverse Y axis

## JavaScript Math: Exercise-27 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to calculate degrees between 2 points with the inverse Y axis.

Test Data :
console.log(pointDirection(1, 0, 12, 0));
0
console.log(pointDirection(1, 0, 1, 10));
90

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````// Define a function named pointDirection that calculates the direction angle from point 1 to point 2.
function pointDirection(x1, y1, x2, y2) {
// Calculate the angle using arctangent, and convert it from radians to degrees.
return Math.atan2(y2 - y1, x2 - x1) * 180 / Math.PI;
}

// Output the result of calculating the direction angle from (1, 0) to (12, 0) to the console.
console.log(pointDirection(1, 0, 12, 0));
// Output the result of calculating the direction angle from (1, 0) to (1, 10) to the console.
console.log(pointDirection(1, 0, 1, 10));
```
```

Output:

```0
90
```
