# List of Operators and Functions

The following table lists the functions and operators that you can use in parameter expressions.

 Symbol Description Example + Add 3+4=7 - Subtract 9-4=5 * Multiply by 3*6=18 / Divide by 9/2=4.5 ^ raise to power of 4^5=1024 \ Integer divide by 9\2=4 SQR square root SQR(64)=8 () prioritizes evaluation of an expression 5*(1+2)=15 ! Factorial 5!=120 Fact(5)=5x4x3x2x1=120 % Percentage 25%=0.25 MIN Minimum value MIN(1,2,4,5,7)=1 MAX Maximum value MAX(3,8)=8 SIN Sine SIN(pi)=0 COS Cosine COS(pi)=-1 TAN Tangent TAN(pi)=0 ASIN Arc Sine ASIN(1)=1.570796 ACOS Arc Cosine ACOS(-1)=3.141593 ATAN Arc Tangent ATAN(0)=0 SEC Secant SEC(0)=1 CSC Cosecant CSC(1)=1.188395 COT Cotangent COT(1)=0.642093 ABS Absolute value ABS(-8)=8 EXP e to the power of EXP(3)=20.0855 EXP2 2 to the power of EXP2(3)=8 EXP10 10 to the power of EXP10(3)=1000 LOG Natural logarithm LOG(16)=2.77259 LOG2 Log base 2 LOG2(8)=3 LOG10 Log base 10 LOG10(1000)=3

NOTES:

• The trigonometric examples in the above table assume that "pi" has been defined as a parameter.

• Functions and operators are not case sensitive.
