AVG Function in Oracle

Calculates and returns the avarage value of an expression.

BITAND Function in Oracle

This function implements “With AND” operation to numerical values ​​given as parameters and returns an integer.

CEIL Function in Oracle

Rounds the numerical value to next bigger integer value.

COS Function in Oracle

Returns the cosine value of the numerical value.

COSH Function in Oracle

Returns the hyperbolic cosine value of the numerical value.

EXP Function in Oracle

Returns e raised to the nth power, where e = 2.71828183.

FLOOR Function in Oracle

Rounds the numerical value to next smaller integer value.

GREATEST Function in Oracle

Returns the largest value in expressions given as parameters.

POWER Function in Oracle

Returns a raised to the bth power.

 ROUND Function in Oracle

The parameters of the function are as follows.

ROUND(number,decimal_places)

number                   ->  number will be rounded

decimal_places     -> This parameter is optinal. If you do not specify this parameter, functions removes ol decimal places from the number. If you set this parameter, it will round decimal places as much as this parameters value.

SIGN Function in Oracle

Returns the sign of the numerical value.
