The predefined math functions in PHP are used to handle the mathematical operations within the integer and float types. These math functions are part of the PHP core. 

Installation: These functions have not required any installation. The complete list of PHP math functions are given below:

Example: Programs illustrate the decbin() function in PHP:

PHP

<?php
echo decbin(12);
?>

                    

Output:

1100
