SQL | Numeric Functions

Numeric Functions are used to perform operations on numbers and return numbers.
Following are the numeric functions defined in SQL:

  1. ABS(): It returns the absolute value of a number.

    +--------------------------------------+
    | 10                                                       
    +--------------------------------------+
