# Less Math Functions

Less math functions are the methods which are used to perform numeric operations such as round, square root, power value, modulus, percentage etc.

A list of math functions used in Less:

Index Function Description Example
1) ceil It is used to round up the number to next highest integer. ceil(0.7) it round the number to:1
2) floor It is used to round down the number to next lowest integer. floor(5.3) it round the number to:5
3) percentage It is used to transform the floating point number to percentage string. percentage(0.5): it is equivalent to 50%.
4) round It is used to round a floating point number. round(4.77): it converts the number to the rounding value as:5
5) sqrt It is used to get the square root of a number. sqrt(36): it defines the square root of the number as: 6
6) abs It is used to get the absolute value of a number. abs(30ft): it displays the absolute value as: 30ft
7) sin It is used to get radian on numbers. sin(2): it calculates the sine value as: 0.90929742682
8) asin it is used to return arcsine (inverse of sine) of a number which returns value between -pi/2 and pi/2. asin(1):it calculates the asin value as: 1.5707963267948966
9) cos It is used to get cosine of the specified value and determines radians on numbers without units. cos(2): it calculates the cos value as: -0.4161468365471424
10) acos It is used to return arccosine (inverse of cosine) of a number which returns value between 0 and pi. acos(1):it calculates the acos value as: 0
11) tan It is used to get tangent of the number. tan(60): it calculates the tan value as: 0.320040389379563
12) atan It is used to get arctangent (inverse of tangent) of a specified number. atan(1): it displays atan value as: 0.7853981633974483
13) pi It is used to get the pi value. pi(): it determines the pi value as: 3.141592653589793
14) pow It is used to get the value of first argument raised to the power of second argument. pow(3,3): it specifies the power value as: 27
15) mod It is used to get modulus of first argument with respect to the second argument. it also handles negative and floating point numbers. mod(7,3): it returns the modulus value as: 1
16) min It is used to get the smallest value of one or more arguments. min(70,40,55,10): it returns the minimum value as: 10
17) max It is used to get the highest value of one or more arguments. max(70,40,55,10): it returns the maximum value as: 70
