C program to show the use of cosh function

The following program shows the use of cosh function to calculate hyperbolic cosine of a number.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

int main(){
    double value, radian;
    printf("Enter a number\n");
    scanf("%lf", &radian);
    
    value = cosh(radian);
    printf("The hyperbolic cosine of %lf is %0.4lf\n", radian, value);
        
    return 0;
}
