Commonly Used Methods of the java.lang.Math class
The operators +, -, *, /, and % give us a way to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and &quot;mod&quot; values together
in java, but having to implement some of the more sophisticated functions of mathematics (like the
square root or sine functions) with only these operators would be challenging indeed!
As such, the java.lang.Math class provides us access to many of these functions. The table below lists
some of the more common among these. (There are more than just these in java.lang.Math, however -one should consult the java API for the whole list.)
