In Ruby, Modules are defined as a collection of methods, classes, and constants together. Math module consists of the module methods for basic trigonometric and transcendental functions.

Module Constants

NameDescription
EDefine the value of base of natural logarithm e.
PIDefine the value of π.

Example: 

Ruby

# Ruby code to illustrate the
# Math Module constants
puts Math::E
 
puts Math::PI

                    

Output:

2.718281828459045
3.141592653589793
