# cos, cosf, cosh, coshf

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Calculate the cosine (cos or cosf) or hyperbolic cosine (cosh or coshf).

```double cos(
double x
);
float cos(
float x
);  // C++ only
long double cos(
long double x
);  // C++ only
float cosf(
float x
);
double cosh(
double x
);
float cosh(
float x
);  // C++ only
long double cosh(
long double x
);  // C++ only
float coshf(
float x
);
```

x

#### Return Value

The cosine or hyperbolic cosine of x. If x is greater than or equal to 263, or less than or equal to –263, a loss of significance in the result of a call to cos occurs.

If the result is too large in a cosh or coshf call, the function returns HUGE_VAL and sets errno to ERANGE, by default.

#### Remarks

C++ allows overloading, so you can call overloads of cos and cosh. In a C program, cos and cosh always take and return a double.

#### Requirements

cos, cosh, cosf, coshf <math.h> ANSI, Win 98, Win Me, Win NT, Win 2000, Win XP

Libraries

All versions of the C run-time libraries.

#### Example

See the example in sin, sinf, sinh, sinhf.
