Returns the ceiling of a number.
compound
Returns the compound interest factor at a rate indicated by
rate
over a number of periods specified in
periods
.
cos
Returns the cosine of an angle stored in and expressed in radians.
deg2rad
Returns the number of radians in an angle expressed in degrees stored in .
