# PHP Math functions

Mathematics ( or math ) functions are frequently used in our scripts. There are PHP math functions to take care of addition subtraction multiplication and many other mathematical requirements.

We will discuss these math functions and try to develop some sample codes on these to further understand on how to use these functions.
 Function Details abs() Absolute value of a number ACOS() Arc Cos value of Radian input ASIN() ARc Sin value of Radian input COS() Cos value of Radian input deg2rad() Convert Degree value to Radian EXP() Value of e raised to the power of input value floor() nearest lower integer max() Maximum value from array or group min() Minimum value from array or group LOG() Log value with different Base LOG10() Log value with Base 10 LOG1P() Log value with input added by 1 PI() Constant value PI() & M_PI POW() Exponential value of a Base round() Rounded value of a number rand() Random number generator rad2deg() Convert radian to degree SIN() Sin value of Radian input TAN() Tangent value of Radian input
