## Introduction of Ruby Math

Ruby provides various Modules which are defined as a set of methods, constants, and classes. Ruby Math is also one of the modules which are a collection of different methods that are used to calculate the Mathematical and trigonometric functions easily, to calculate this function ruby uses Math package. Math packages will include or load all the built-in functions that need to be loaded first to calculate or use these tricky trigonometric functions in the program. For example, log (calculate the logarithm value), sqrt (calculate the square root).

### Functions of Ruby Math with Examples

Functions of ruby math are given below:

#### 1. E

#### 9. atan2

This function is used to calculate the arc tangent of the given value. It takes two parameters. The return type of this function is float and ranges from –PI to PI.

**Code:**

`puts "Value of arc of tangent between two values"`

puts Math::atan2(1,0)

**Output:**

#### 10. erf

This function is used to calculate the error function of the given value. The return type of this function is float.

**Code:**

`puts "Value of error function"`

puts Math::erf(3)

**Output:**

#### 11. erfc

This function is the opposite of erf function, as erf calculates the error function, and erfc functions are used to calculate the complementary error function of a given value. The return type of this function is float.

**Code:**

`puts "Value of complementary error function"`

puts Math::erfc(3)

**Output:**

#### 12. exp

This function is used to calculate the value of e_{a}, Return type of this function is float.

**Code:**

`puts "Exponential value"`

puts Math::exp(3)

**Output:**

#### 13. frexp

This function is used to calculate the array consist of two elements. The array contains the exponent and a normalized fraction of the given value

**Code:**

`puts "Two Element Array"`

puts Math::frexp(3)

**Output:**

#### 14. sqrt

This function is used to calculate the square root of the given value. The return type of the function is float. Note that this function will calculate the square root of only positive values if the negative value is given as an input, then it will throw an error

**Code:**

`puts "Value of square root"`

puts Math.sqrt(9)

**Output:**

#### 15. hypot

This function is used to calculate √a_{2}+b_{2} . i.e. hypotenuse of a right-angle triangle. It takes two parameters. The return type of this function is float.
