const float voltage = 3.3;

void setup() {
   // Robojax Arduino floating points
  Serial.begin(9600);// initialize the Serial Monitor

void loop() {
  Serial.println(    pi(), 10  );


  printText: prints the text on Serial monitor
  @param t is String text
  @ returns nothing
void printText(String t)


 * getDays is calculation the number of days in a year
 * @param a is integer 
 * @param returns integer value of number of days
int getDays(int a)
  return (a * 365);// multiply  a by 365 to get number of days and return it

float getArea(float l, float w)
  float area = l * w;
  return area;

String makeText(double temperature)
  String newText;
   if (temperature > 60.5)
    newText = "Very hot";
    newText = "Not hot";
   return newText;

double pi()

  double p = 3.141592;// 6 decimal points
  return p;// returns value of pi

float getPower(float i)
  return i*voltage;//
