### min  Returns the smallest of two numbers.

` min (value1, value2)`

### max  Returns the largest of two numbers.

` max (value1, value2)`

### floor  Returns the largest integer less than or equal to the specified number.

` floor (value)`

### round  Rounds a numeric value to the nearest integral or decimal value.

` round (value, decimals)`
• value: numeric value
• decimals: numbers of required decimal to be round to
``` Examples: round (23.4567 ,2)
Result: 23.46 ```

### ceiling  Returns the smallest integral value that is greater than or equal to the specified double-precision floating-point number.

` ceiling (value)`

### log  Returns the natural (or other base for) logarithm of a specified number.

` log (value, base)`

value: the number to calculate log (Mandatory) base: base for the log (default is e)

### abs  Returns the absolute value of a double-precision floating-point number.

` abs (value)`

### range Generates and returns a sequence of integral numbers within a specified range.

` range (start, count)`
• start: the value of the first integer in the sequence
• count: the number of sequential integers to generate
``` Example: range (2,5)

This generates 5 numbers starting from 2.

Result: [2, 3, 4, 5, 6] ```

### rand Generates and returns a random number within a specified range.

If you don’t specify any parameters, it will generate a decimal value between 0 and 1.

` rand (minimum, maximum, seed)`
• minimum: the value of the first integer in the sequence
• maximum: the number of sequential integers to generate
• seed: If you want to generate the same random number every time within the given minimum and maximum range
```Example 1: rand(3,10)

This generates a random number between 3 amd 10.

Sample Result: 8

Example 2: rand()

This generates a random decimal value between 0 and 1.

Sample Result: 0.444317978548034

Example 3: rand(3,10,6)

This generates the same random number between 3 amd 10 .

Result: 9

Example 4: rand(-20,-10)

This generates a random number between -20 amd -10.

Result: -11  ```
