Arithmetic Functions

Arithmetic functions contains basic mathematical functions like power and logarithmic functions. They're used often in common mathematical calculations.


Overview

You can use the following built-in arithmetic functions.
Function Description
Abs(x) Absolute value of x, removes the sign of x

x^2 Square of x

Sign(x) The sign of x.
Returns 1 if x>0, 0 if x=0 and -1 if x<0

Sqrt(x) Square root of x

Exp(x)
e^(x)
Exponential value of x

Ln(x)
Log(x)

Natural logarithm of x,
Solves y for ey=x
Log(x, base)

Custom based logarithm of x, Logbase(x),
Solves y for basey=x

Log10(x) 10-Based logarithm of x,
Solves y for 10y=x

'Examples of using Arithmetic Functions

Abs(-15)
       Ans = 15

4^2
       Ans = 16

Sqrt(9)
       Ans = 3

Sqrt(4 ^ 2)
       Ans = 4

Sqrt(3 ^ 2 + 4 ^ 2)
       Ans = 5

e^(1)
       Ans = 2.7182818285

Exp(2 + 0.5)
       Ans = 12.182493961

Ln(20)
       Ans =  2.9957322736

Log(Exp(3))
       Ans =  3

Log10(1000)
       Ans = 3

Log(1000, 10)
       Ans = 3
