## What is a function in C programming?

A function is a group of statements that together perform a task. Every C program has at least one function, which is main(), and all the most trivial programs can define additional functions. A function declaration tells the compiler about a function’s name, return type, and parameters.

**What is a function how is it useful in programming?**

Functions are “self contained” modules of code that accomplish a specific task. Functions usually “take in” data, process it, and “return” a result. Once a function is written, it can be used over and over and over again. Functions can be “called” from the inside of other functions.

### Why function is so important in C programming?

Advantage of functions in C By using functions, we can avoid rewriting same logic/code again and again in a program. We can call C functions any number of times in a program and from any place in a program. We can track a large C program easily when it is divided into multiple functions.

**What is main function and why it is used in C?**

A main is a predefined keyword or function in C. It is the first function of every C program that is responsible for starting the execution and termination of the program. It is a special function that always starts executing code from the ‘main’ having ‘int’ or ‘void’ as return data type.

## What is function explain types of function?

The types of functions are defined on the basis of the domain, range, and function expression. The expression used to write the function is the prime defining factor for a function. Every mathematical expression which has an input value and a resulting answer can be conveniently presented as a function.

**WHAT IS function and its example?**

A function can then be defined as a set of ordered pairs: Example: {(2,4), (3,5), (7,3)} is a function that says. “2 is related to 4”, “3 is related to 5” and “7 is related 3”. Also, notice that: the domain is {2,3,7} (the input values)

### What is function explain?

A technical definition of a function is: a relation from a set of inputs to a set of possible outputs where each input is related to exactly one output. We can write the statement that f is a function from X to Y using the function notation f:X→Y.

**What are the advantages of function?**

Advantages of Functions

- Functions allow the divide and conquer strategy to be used for the development of programs.
- Functions help avoid duplication of effort and code in programs.
- Functions enable us to hide the implementation details of a program, e. g., we have used library functions such as sqrt, log, sin, etc.

## WHAT IS functions explain all the functions the with help of example?

Functions are used for Placing or Storing the Code which is to be Repeated Several Times. For Example, if we need Same Code, then we must have to Write that Code Again and Again So that for Removing this Task, we uses functions.
