# Numeric Functions

You can create a formula that contains arithmetic operators that are commonly used in formulas. See Numeric Functions in the Scripting Guide for more information about syntax.

#### Abs

Returns a positive number of the same magnitude as the value of its argument. For example, |5| and |–5| both result in 5.

#### Ceiling

Returns the smallest integer greater than or equal to its argument. For example, Ceiling(2.3) results in 3, while Ceiling(–2.3) results in –2.

#### Floor

Returns the largest integer less than or equal to its argument. For example, Floor(2.7) results in 2, but Floor(–0.5) results in –1.

#### Integrate

Integrates an expression with respect to a scalar value, using the adaptive quadrature method from Gander and Gautschi (2000). For example, Integrate( Exp( -x ), x, 0, . ) results in 0.99999999986846.

#### Modulo

Returns the remainder when the second argument is divided into the first. For example, Modulo(6, 5) results in 1.

#### Round

Rounds the first argument to the number of decimal places given by the second argument. For example, Round(3.554, 2) rounds to 3.55 and Round(3.555, 2) rounds to 3.56.
