# Tips:Derivation of Mathematical Constants in SAS

From sasCommunity

Mathematical constants are needed in some conversion calculations. In older versions of SAS, either complicated formulas must be used to calculate these constants or a standard value must be supplied.

However, with the constant function in SAS, some mathematical functions can be derived directly. Below is an example for the constant PI.

data _null_; pi = constant('pi'); put pi=; run;
