This function provides the functionality to calculate the arc sin of a value. The value should be less than equal to 1 and greater than equal to -1.

This function takes a single parameter as the value whose arc sin value needs to be calculated and return the value which is the result of the calculation.


    X = 0.2
    The function will return 0.201358 

This function is a part of math.h library and it must be included in the program.
