  1. The signum(double num) is an inbuilt method of StrictMath class in Java which is used to get the signum method of the argument which means:
    • The result is zero if the argument is zero.
    • The result 1.0 when the argument is greater than zero.
    • The result is -1.0 if the argument is less than zero.

    Syntax :

    public static double signum(double num)

    Parameters : The method accepts a single parameter num of double type representing the parameter whose signum is to be returned.
    Return Value : The method returns signum function of the argument num. It also gives rise to two different results:

    • The result is NaN when the first argument is NaN .
    • The result is the same as the argument num when num is positive zero or negative zero.

    Examples:

    Input: num = 72.88d
    Output: 1.0
    
    Input: num = -72.88d
    Output: -1.0
    
    Input: num = 0.0d
    Output: 0.0
    

    Below program illustrates the working of java.lang.StrictMath.signum(double) method.




    // Java praogram to illustrate the
    // java.lang.StrictMath.signum(double)
    import java.lang.*;
      
    public class Geeks {
      
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            double num1 = 46.82d, num2 = 0.0d, num3 = -0.0d, num4 = -18.2d;
      
            // It returns 1.0 since the argument is greater than zero
            double sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num1);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num2);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num3);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num4);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
        }
    }

    Output:

    Signum Value = 1.0
    Signum Value = 0.0
    Signum Value = -0.0
    Signum Value = -1.0
    
  2. The signum(float num) is an inbuilt method of StrictMath class in Java which is used to get the signum method of the argument which means:
    • The result is zero if the argument is zero.
    • The result 1.0 when the argument is greater than zero.
    • The result is -1.0 if the argument is less than zero.

    Syntax :

    public static float signum(float num)

    Parameters : The method accepts a single parameter num of float type representing the parameter whose signum is to be returned.

    Return Value : The method returns signum function of the argument num. It also gives rise to two different results:

    • The result is NaN when the first argument is NaN .
    • The result is the same as the argument num when num is positive zero or negative zero.

    Examples:

    Input: num = 11.8f
    Output: 1.0
    
    Input: num = -55.88f
    Output: -1.0
    
    Input: num = 0.0f
    Output: 0.0
    

    Below program illustrates the working of java.lang.StrictMath.signum(float) method:




    // Java praogram to illustrate the
    // java.lang.StrictMath.signum(float)
    import java.lang.*;
      
    public class Geeks {
      
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            float num1 = 7.22f, num2 = 0.0f, num3 = -0.0f, num4 = -18.11f;
      
            // It returns 1.0 since the argument is greater than zero
            float sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num1);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num2);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num3);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
      
            sig_val = StrictMath.signum(num4);
            System.out.println("Signum Value = " + sig_val);
        }
    }

    Output:

    Signum Value = 1.0
    Signum Value = 0.0
    Signum Value = -0.0
    Signum Value = -1.0
