C# Math Methods



The C# has a number of methods that are available for mathematical operation like Min(), Max(), Log(), Exp(), Sin(), Ceiling(), Floor(), etc. These methods are listed below. For more details about any one of these, please visit its page.

C# Math Methods

Basic Math Methods

MethodDescription
Abs() Returns the absolute (positive) value of the given number.
BigMul() Returns product of two 32 bit numbers.
BitDecrement() Returns the next smallest value that compares less than the argument.
BitIncrement() Returns the next largest value that compares greater than the argument.
Ceiling() Rounds the given number up to the nearest integer.
Clamp() Returns the value clamped to the inclusive range of min and max.
CopySign() Returns a number with magnitude of first argument and sign of second argument.
DivRem() Calculates the quotient of two numbers and also returns the remainder in an output parameter.
Floor() Rounds the given number down to the nearest integer.
FusedMultiplyAdd() FusedMultiplyAdd(x, y, z) returns (x*y) + z.
IEEEremainder() Returns the remainder resulting from the division of specified arguments.
Max() Returns the number with maximum value.
MaxMagnitude() Returns the number with larger magnitude.
Min() Returns the number with minimum value.
MinMagnitude() Returns the number with smaller magnitude.
Round() Rounds a value to the nearest integer or to the specified number of fractional digits.
ScaleB() ScaleB(a, b) returns a x 2b.
Sign() Returns an integer that indicates the sign of the argument.
Truncate() Rounds the given number towards zero.

Power & Logarithmic Methods

MethodsDescription
