# Math Functions

Note: Math functions generally return a blank value (empty string) if any of the incoming parameters are non-numeric, or the operation is invalid (such as divide by zero).

## Abs Absolute value

`Value := Abs(Number)`

Returns the absolute value of Number.

The return value is the same type as Number (integer or floating point).

`MsgBox Abs(-1.2) ; Returns 1.2`

## Ceil Rounding up

`Value := Ceil(Number)`

Returns Number rounded up to the nearest integer (without any .00 suffix).

```MsgBox Ceil(1.2)  ; Returns 2
MsgBox Ceil(-1.2) ; Returns -1```

## Exp Exponential

`Value := Exp(N)`

Returns e (which is approximately 2.71828182845905) raised to the Nth power.

N may be negative and may contain a decimal point. To raise numbers other than e to a power, use the ** operator.

`MsgBox Exp(1.2) ; Returns 3.320117`

## Floor Rounding down

`Value := Floor(Number)`

Returns Number rounded down to the nearest integer (without any .00 suffix).

```MsgBox Floor(1.2)  ; Returns 1
MsgBox Floor(-1.2) ; Returns -2```

## Log Decimal logarithm

`Value := Log(Number)`

Returns the logarithm (base 10) of Number.

The result is a floating-point number. If Number is negative, an empty string is returned.

`MsgBox Log(1.2) ; Returns 0.079181`

## Ln Natural logarithm

`Value := Ln(Number)`

Returns the natural logarithm (base e) of Number.

The result is a floating-point number. If Number is negative, an empty string is returned.

`MsgBox Ln(1.2) ; Returns 0.182322`

## Max Highest value

`Value := Max(Number1 [, Number2, ...])`

Returns the highest value of one or more numbers.

If one the input values is non-numeric, an empty string is returned.

`MsgBox, % Max(2.11, -2, 0) ; Returns 2.11`

You can also specify a variadic parameter to compare multiple values within an array. For example:

```array := [1, 2, 3, 4]
MsgBox, % Max(array*) ; Returns 4
```

## Min Lowest value

`Value := Min(Number1 [, Number2, ...])`

Returns the lowest value of one or more numbers.

If one the input values is non-numeric, an empty string is returned.

`MsgBox, % Min(2.11, -2, 0) ; Returns -2`

You can also specify a variadic parameter to compare multiple values within an array. For example:

```array := [1, 2, 3, 4]
MsgBox, % Min(array*) ; Returns 1```

## Mod Remainder after division (Modulo)

`Value := Mod(Dividend, Divisor)`

Returns the remainder when Dividend is divided by Divisor.

The sign of the result is always the same as the sign of the first parameter. If either input is a floating point number, the result is also a floating point number. If the second parameter is zero, the function yields a blank result (empty string).

`MsgBox Mod(7.5, 2) ; Returns 1.5 (2 x 3 + 1.5)`

## Round Rounding

`Value := Round(Number , N)`

Returns Number rounded to N decimal places.

If N is omitted or 0, Number is rounded to the nearest integer:

`MsgBox Round(3.14)    ; Returns 3`

If N is positive number, Number is rounded to N decimal places:

`MsgBox Round(3.14, 1) ; Returns 3.1`

If N is negative, Number is rounded by N digits to the left of the decimal point:

```MsgBox Round(345, -1) ; Returns 350
MsgBox Round(345, -2) ; Returns 300```

The result is an integer if N is omitted or less than 1. Otherwise, the result is a numeric string with exactly N decimal places. If a pure number is needed, simply perform another math operation on Round's return value; for example: `Round(3.333, 1)+0`.

## Sqrt Square root

`Value := Sqrt(Number)`

Returns the square root of Number.

The result is a floating-point number. If Number is negative, the function yields a blank result (empty string).

`MsgBox Sqrt(16) ; Returns 4`

## Trigonometry

Note: To convert a radians value to degrees, multiply it by 180/pi (approximately 57.29578). To convert a degrees value to radians, multiply it by pi/180 (approximately 0.01745329252). The value of pi (approximately 3.141592653589793) is 4 times the arctangent of 1.

## Sin Sine

`Value := Sin(Number)`

Returns the trigonometric sine of Number.

Number must be expressed in radians.

`MsgBox Sin(1.2) ; Returns 0.932039`

## Cos Cosine

`Value := Cos(Number)`

Returns the trigonometric cosine of Number.

Number must be expressed in radians.

`MsgBox Cos(1.2) ; Returns 0.362358`

## Tan Tangent

`Value := Tan(Number)`

Returns the trigonometric tangent of Number.

Number must be expressed in radians.

`MsgBox Tan(1.2) ; Returns 2.572152`

## ASin Arcsine

`Value := ASin(Number)`

Returns the arcsine (the number whose sine is Number) in radians.

If Number is less than -1 or greater than 1, the function yields a blank result (empty string).

`MsgBox ASin(0.2) ; Returns 0.201358`

## ACos Arccosine

`Value := ACos(Number)`

Returns the arccosine (the number whose cosine is Number) in radians.

If Number is less than -1 or greater than 1, the function yields a blank result (empty string).

`MsgBox ACos(0.2) ; Returns 1.369438`

## ATan Arctangent

`Value := ATan(Number)`

Returns the arctangent (the number whose tangent is Number) in radians.

`MsgBox ATan(1.2) ; Returns 0.876058`

## Error-Handling

These functions return a blank result (empty string) if any incoming parameters are non-numeric or an invalid operation (such as divide by zero) is attempted.
