The "Math Constants" are not defined in Standard C/C++. Therefore, in order to use them, you have to first define _USE_MATH_DEFINES and then include cmath or math.h as below.

If compiling as C++:

#define _USE_MATH_DEFINES

#include <cmath>

If compiling as C:

#define _USE_MATH_DEFINES

#include <math.h>
