# SQL arithmetic function

## Arithmetic function

A mathematical function executes a mathematical operation usually based on input values that are provided as arguments, and return a numeric value as the result of the operation. Mathematical functions operates on numeric data such as decimal, integer, float, real, smallint, and tinyint.

By default, the precision of built-in operations on float data type data is six decimal places.

## SQL arithmetic functions are:

Functions | Description |
---|---|

ABS() | This SQL ABS() returns the absolute value of a number passed as an argument. |

CEIL() | This SQL CEIL() will rounded up any positive or negative decimal value within the function upwards. |

FLOOR() | The SQL FLOOR() rounded up any positive or negative decimal value down to the next least integer value. |

EXP() | The SQL EXP() returns e raised to the n-th power(n is the numeric expression), where e is the base of natural algorithm and the value of e is approximately 2.71828183. |

LN() | The SQL LN() function returns the natural logarithm of n, where n is greater than 0 and its base is a number equal to approximately 2.71828183. |

MOD() | This SQL MOD() function returns the remainder from a division. |

POWER() | This SQL POWER() function returns the value of a number raised to another, where both of the numbers are passed as arguments. |

SQRT() | The SQL SQRT() returns the square root of given value in the argument. |
