Computer Programming/Mathematical calculations
Simple Arithmetic[edit | edit source]
Most any programming language can use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division between Computer programming/Variables to put the results into new Variables. Watch out for risk of Divide by Zero, which can give serious indigestion to some programming languages.
Date Math[edit | edit source]
Many programming languages can calculate the number of days weeks months between two dates, provided the dates are defined using consistent Computer programming/Types.
Higher Math[edit | edit source]
Some programming languages can compute values using mathematics beyond simple arithmetic, such as Square Roots, Sine, Cosine, Logarithms, Imaginary Numbers.
