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.
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
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
