1 Rounding numbers
Problem  Solution  Examples 

rounding  round  round 3.4 > 3 round 3.5 > 4 
find the nearest integer greaterthan or equal to x

ceiling  ceiling 3.1 > 4 
find the nearest integer less than or equal to x

floor  floor 3.5 > 3 
2 Taking logarithms
log 2.718281828459045 > 1.0 logBase 10 10000 > 4.0
3 Generating random numbers
import System.Random main = do gen < getStdGen let ns = randoms gen :: [Int] print $ take 10 ns
4 Binary representation of numbers
import Data.Bits import Data.List (foldl')  Extract a range of bits, mostsignificant first bitRange :: Bits a => a > Int > Int > [Bool] bitRange n lo hi = foldl' (\l > \x > testBit n x : l) [] [lo..hi]  Extract all bits, mostsignificant first bits :: Bits a => a > [Bool] bits n = bitRange n 0 (bitSize n  1)  Display a number in binary, including leading zeroes.  c.f. Numeric.showHex showBits :: Bits a => a > ShowS showBits = showString . map (\b > if b then '1' else '0') . bits
