Compute cosine of x, where x is in degrees


julia> cosd(45)

This example calculates the cosine of 45 degrees using the cosd function. The result is approximately 0.7071067811865476.

julia> angle = 60
julia> cosd(angle)

Here, we assign the value 60 to the variable angle and then calculate the cosine of angle using cosd. The result is approximately 0.5000000000000001.

julia> angles = [30, 45, 60, 90]
julia> cosd.(angles)
4-element Array{Float64,1}:

In this example, we have an array of angles [30, 45, 60, 90]. We use the broadcasting syntax cosd.(angles) to calculate the cosine of each angle in the array. The resulting array contains the cosine values for each angle.

Common mistake example:

julia> cosd(90)

Sometimes, users expect the cosine of 90 degrees to be exactly zero. However, due to floating-point precision, the result is a very small number close to zero. It's important to be aware of these precision limitations when working with trigonometric functions in Julia.
