Calculator that Evaluates an Expression

Type an expression; e.g., 2*(3-1)  

Return to list of examples

You can enter an expression such as 3/2 + 4*(12+3).
You can also enter JavaScript's Math properties and Methods.
For example, to find the value of pi(p), type:
 PI  (Note: JavaScript is case sensitive. PI in all CAPS.
To find the log of 3, type (lower case):
To find 2 raised to the 3rd power, type:
To find the area of a 9 inch pizza (in sq. inches), type:
