they are in runtime lib: just include math.h and you get cos, sin, tan, ...

Just #include <math.h> and you will be able to use all pre-defined functions.

Open up math.h and you will find all the syntax of using them. You can also refer to any C or C++ text on how to use them.

actually, according to the new C++ standard, you should be including:
#include <cmath>
instead of #include <math.h>.  Either one will work now, but the first way is preferable.

once you include that file, you will have access to the following functions:

double sin(double x);
double cos(double x);
double tan(double x);
double asin(double x);
double acos(double x);
double atan(double x);
double pow(double base, double exponent);
double log(double x);

and there are more - you will need to look at the documentation

so usage is easy:  double result = sin(value);

let me know if you need anything else.

Well...

I forgot to grade this answer before... I'm sorry about that.

VEngineer: I'm sorry for not accepting your answer, but I only can accept one, and wildy was first, and I applied what he told to me and worked just fine.
But I thank to you.
I will keep in mind what you say in my next program :-)

wildy... Thanks
