math.

Here is a list of the functions: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mathematical-functions.html

Here are some simple examples to get you started.

- The Quadratic Formula ax^2 + bx + c = 0

# 2x^2 – 4x – 3 = 0.

SET @a= 1;

SET @b= 3;

SET @c= -4;

SET @XX = ( -(@b) - SQRT( POW(@b,2) -4 * @a * @c) /
POW(@a,2) ) ;

SET @YY = ( -(@b) + SQRT( POW(@b,2) -4 * @a * @c) /
POW(@a,2) ) ;

SET @XXX = MOD(@YY, @XX);
