The C <math.h> tanh() function returns hyperbolic tangent of a value. The hyperbolic tangent of x is defined as:

tanh

where e is an Euler's number.

Syntax

double tanh (double x);
float tanhf (float x);
long double tanhl (long double x);

Parameters

x Specify the value.

Return Value

Returns the hyperbolic tangent of a value.

Example:

In the below example, tanh() function is used to find out the hyperbolic tangent of a value.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
 
int main (){
  printf("%lf\n", tanh(0));
  printf("%lf\n", tanh(2));
  printf("%lf\n", tanh(4));
  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

0.000000
0.964028
0.999329
