Grokking Modern System Design Interview for Engineers & Managers

Ace your System Design Interview and take your career to the next level. Learn to handle the design of applications like Netflix, Quora, Facebook, Uber, and many more in a 45-min interview. Learn the RESHADED framework for architecting web-scale applications by determining requirements, constraints, and assumptions before diving into a step-by-step design process.

The ** sinh() function** in Ruby calculates and returns the hyperbolic sine of a number. To be more specific, it returns the hyperbolic sine of a number in radians.

The figure below shows the mathematical representation of the `sinh()`

function.

Note: This function is present in the

`Math`

module.

```
sinh(num)
```

This function requires a `number`

that represents an `angle`

in `radians`

as a parameter.

The following formula converts `degrees`

to `radians`

.

```
radians = degrees * ( pi / 180.0 )
```

`sinh()`

returns a number’s hyperbolic sine (`radians`

), which is sent as a parameter.

#positive number in radiansputs "The value of sinh(2.3) : ", Math.sinh(2.3)#negative number in radiansputs "The value of sinh(-2.3) : ", Math.sinh(-2.3)#converting the degrees angle into radians and then applying sinh()#degrees = 90#PI = 3.14159265result = 90.0 * (Math::PI / 180.0)puts "The value of sinh(#{result}) : ", Math.sinh(result)
