Computer Programming/Mathematical calculations

This computer programming article is available for pseudocode and Ada.

Simple Arithmetic


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


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


Some programming languages can compute values using mathematics beyond simple arithmetic, such as Square Roots, Sine, Cosine, Logarithms, Imaginary Numbers.
