So I'm a college student down in Texas and I'm crunching for time atm with finals coming up and programs due in a few days.

Anyways, my professor gave me this:

double sin( float value angle){

Compute the sine of “angle” using as many terms in the series as required till two successive approximations differ by no more than 0.00000001. Hint: see the example for computing square roots. The sine of a number may be found using the following series.

Sin( x ) = x – x3/3! + x5/5! – x7/7! + ●●●

}

To figure out the sin function for my program I need to figure out the algorithm to calc a sin.

We were also given this snipet of code to help us try to do this, but it is wiht square roots and is very little help to me if I can't figure out how to put the Sin(x)... into algorithm format.

Here is the code snipet.

/Thanks a lot, and if you need anymore details on this, I'd be glad to try to explain better.Code:/ #define EPSILON 0.000001 // Traditional constant definition. const double EPSILON = 0.000001; double sqrt( double n) { double guess; if (n >= 0.0) { //verify legal input for (guess = n; !( fabs(guess * guess – n) < EPSILON); guess = ( ( n + guess * guess) / (2.0 * guess) ) ) /* null body for loop */ ; return(guess); } else return (-1.0); //error flag }
