#### Description

Math is an object that defines properties that refer to useful mathematical functions and constants. These functions and constants are conveniently grouped by this Math object and are invoked with syntax like this:

```y = Math.sin(x);

area = radius * radius * Math.PI; ```

Math is not a class of objects like Date and String are. There is no Math( ) constructor, and functions like Math.sin( ) are simply functions, not methods that operate on an object.
