Golang math Package Constants and Functions

In Go language, the math package is used for various mathematical-related operations, math package has a variety of constants and mathematical functions to work with the mathematical operations. To use these math functions – we need to import the math package.

Note: The math package does not guarantee bit-identical results across architectures.
