# MathF.Sin() Method in C# with Examples

MathF.Sin(Single) is an inbuilt MathF class method which returns the sine of a given float value argument(specified angle).

Syntax: public static float Sin (float x);
Here, x is the angle(measured in radian) whose sine is to be returned and the type of this parameter is System.Single.

Return Value: This method will return the sine of x of type System.Single. If x is equal to NegativeInfinity, PositiveInfinity, or NaN, then this method returns NaN.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discussed method:

Example 1:

 `// C# program to illustrate the ` `// MathF.Sin(Single) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main(String[] args) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``float` `a = 17f; ` ` `  `        ``// converting value to radians ` `        ``float` `b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180; ` ` `  `        ``// using method and displaying result ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b)); ` `        ``a = 47f; ` ` `  `        ``// converting value to radians ` `        ``b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180; ` ` `  `        ``// using method and displaying result ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b)); ` `        ``a = 96F; ` ` `  `        ``// converting value to radians ` `        ``b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180; ` ` `  `        ``// using method and displaying result ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b)); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```0.2923717
0.7313538
0.9945219
```

Example 2: To show the working of MathF.Sin(Single) method when the argument is NaN or infinity.

 `// C# program to illustrate the ` `// MathF.Sin(Single) Method ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `Geeks { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main(String[] args) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Taking the positive, negative ` `        ``// infinity and NaN ` `        ``float` `positiveInfinity = ``float``.PositiveInfinity; ` `        ``float` `negativeInfinity = ``float``.NegativeInfinity; ` `        ``float` `nan = ``float``.NaN; ` ` `  `        ``float` `result; ` ` `  `        ``// Here argument is negative infinity, ` `        ``// so the output will be NaN ` `        ``result = MathF.Sin(negativeInfinity); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(result); ` ` `  `        ``// Here argument is positive infinity, ` `        ``// so the output will also be NaN ` `        ``result = MathF.Sin(positiveInfinity); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(result); ` ` `  `        ``// Here the argument is NaN, so  ` `        ``// the output will be NaN ` `        ``result = MathF.Sin(nan); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(result); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```NaN
NaN
NaN
```
