# Math Functions

The math functions provide additional mathematical operators beyond the basic arithmetical operators of Jitterbit Script.

## Ceiling

### Declaration

`int Ceiling(double d)`

### Syntax

`Ceiling(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the mathematical ceiling (rounded up to the nearest integer) of a given value as an integer. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

`Ceiling(52.154); // Returns a value of 53`

## Exp

### Declaration

`double Exp(double d)`

### Syntax

`Exp(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the mathematical result e^d, or e to the power of d. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

`Exp(4.60517); // Returns a value of 100 (99.9999814011926)`

## Floor

### Declaration

`int Floor(double d)`

### Syntax

`Floor(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the mathematical floor (rounded down to the nearest integer) of a given value as an integer. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

`Floor(52.654); // Returns a value of 52`

## Log

### Declaration

`double Log(double d)`

### Syntax

`Log(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the natural log (logarithm to the base e) of a given value. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

```Log(100); // Returns a value of 4.60517018598809
Log("5a"); // Returns 1.6094379124341
// Treated as if Log(5)```

## Log10

### Declaration

`double Log10(double d)`

### Syntax

`Log10(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the logarithm to the base 10 of a given value. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

```log10(100); // Returns a value of 2

log10("5a"); // Returns 0.698970004336019
// Treated as if Log10(5)```

## Mod

### Declaration

`long Mod(long numerator, long denominator)`

### Syntax

`Mod(<numerator>, <denominator>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `numerator:` A long value
• `denominator:` A long value

### Description

Calculates the modulus (the remainder) of the division of the numerator by the denominator. The return value has the same sign as the numerator. If the denominator is 0, the numerator is returned.

### Examples

```Mod(3005, 1000); // Returns 5
Mod(204, 17); // Returns 0
Mod(-206, 17); // Returns -2```

## Pow

### Declaration

`double Pow(double base, double exponent)`

### Syntax

`Pow(<base>, <exponent>)`

#### Required Parameters

• base: A double value,
• exponent: A double value

### Description

Returns the mathematical result base^exponent, or base to the power of exponent. The arguments should be doubles and are first converted to doubles if not.

### Examples

`Pow(2,3); // Returns a value of 8`

## Round

### Declaration

`string Round(double d[, int numPlaces])`

### Syntax

`Round(<d>[, <numPlaces>])`

#### Required Parameters

• d: A double value

#### Optional Parameters

• `numPlaces:` An integer number of places of precision. If omitted, the default is 0.

### Description

Returns the given value rounded to a specified precision and then converted to a string. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not. This function is designed for displaying values (not computing) as the output is a string.

This function is similar to the String `Format()` function.

### Examples

`Round(9.53537465, 4); // Returns the string "9.5354"`

## RoundToInt

### Declaration

`int RoundToInt(double d)`

### Syntax

`RoundToInt(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the given value rounded to the nearest integer (no decimal places). The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

`RoundToInt(9.5353); // Returns a value of 10`

## Sqrt

### Declaration

`double Sqrt(double d)`

### Syntax

`Sqrt(<d>)`

#### Required Parameters

• `d:` A double value

### Description

Returns the square root of a given value. The argument should be a double and is first converted to a double if not.

### Examples

`Sqrt(9); // Returns a value of 3`
