C Math Functions

C Math Functions:

Math functions and constants are already defined in the C library, in <math.h> header file, which can be used to perform mathematical calculations.

C provides various math functions including;

abs() function:

This function is used to get an absolute value of a number.

Syntax:

abs ( number )

ceil() function:

This function is used to get a round up value; greater than or equal to given number.

Syntax:

ceil ( number )

floor() function:

This function is used to get a round down value; less than or equal to given number.

Syntax:

floor ( number )

sqrt() function:

This function is used to get the square root of a number.

Syntax:

sqrt ( number )

pow() function:

This function is used to get the value of base raised to the power of exponent.

Syntax:

pow ( base, exponent )

There are numerous other functions defined by C which are used to perform mathematical operations.

Example:

```#include<stdio.h> #include <math.h>   void main() { printf("\n%f",ceil(56.698)); printf("\n%f",floor(78.67)); printf("\n%f",sqrt(2)); printf("\n%f",pow(6,2)); printf("\n%d",abs(-897)); }```

Output

```57.000000 78.000000 1.414214 36.000000 897```
