    Hi everyone, wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction for this problem I have looked at tutorials but I don’t understand why some have #include while others have #include and also I have never seen cin>> and < Write a C program that estimates the value of the mathematical constant e by using the
    following formula.

    e= 1 + 1/(1!) + 1/(2!) + 1/(3!) +…1/(n!)

    – The program should ask user to input the number of terms (n) to approximate value of e
    – Then it calculates and displays the approximated value of constant e
    – Compare the approximated value of e with the given mathematical constant
    e = 2.7182818284590… and find the absolute [use fabs()] difference between the two

    An example of input/output dialog is shown below:-

    Enter number of terms (n) : 15
    The approximated value of e : 2.718281828458
    The given mathematical constant e = 2.718281828459
    The absolute difference between the two value : 0.000000000001

    Thanking you in advance, daisy……

    cout and cin are input and output members of a stream object in the file iostream.h . This header file is associated with c++ programs and the method that most c++ programmers use for input and output. cout stands for “console output” and cin stands for console input. You can use them more easily than printf and scanf :

    for the program , try:
