Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted, Albert Einstein.
A calculator is a small electronic device or software application that canperform mathematical calculations. Powerful, inexpensive graphing calculators have become widely available, but smartphones are rendering them increasingly obsolete. Screen rulers let you measure objects easily and quickly.
To mentally calculate 497 + 598, adjust them to get round numbers (500 + 598 = 1098 or 500 + 600 = 1100), then correct after the sum is done (1098 - 3 = 1095, 1100 - 5 = 1095). 48 * 12 = 50 * 12 - (12 * 2) = 600 - 24 = 576. 15% de 36 = 10% of 36 + 5% of 36 = 3.6 + (10% of 36)/2 = 3.6 + 1.8 = 5.4.
It also supports all unit conversions commonly used in everyday life, such as length, mass, area, volume, time, temperature, force, energy, power, pressure, speed, fuel efficiency, and data size, e.g., 1200 m/h = ^{(1200 * 3.28084)}⁄_{(1 * 3600)} ft/s (Remember: 1 m = 3.28084 ft, 1h = 3600 s) = ^{3937.008}⁄_{3600} ft/s = 1.09361333333.To calculate the percentage (20%) of a specific number (150), convert the percentage number into a decimal (20 ÷ 100 = .2), then multiply both numbers (.2 * 150 = 30). How to calculate it with a calculator? Press the following buttons: 150 x 20, SHIFT, then the ( key = 150 x 20% = 30

If you have ten jars, and in every four jars there are twelve lollipops, how many lollipops do you have?
10 jars * ^{12 lollipops}⁄_{4 jars} = ^{10 * 12}⁄_{4} lollipops = 30 lollipops. Another way of looking at the same problem is as follows,
4 jars ——> 12 lollipops
10 jars ——> x
x = ^{10*12}⁄_{4} = 30 lollipops.

Qalculate! is a multi-purpose cross-platform desktop calculator. It is simple to use but provides the kind of power and versatility normally reserved for complicated math packages, as well as useful tools for everyday needs, such as currency conversion and percent calculation. The top buttons (from left to right) switches between the general and the programming keypad, switches between exact and approximate calculation, changes rational number form (Mixed fractions is selected by default), display mode (normal, scientific mode) and number base in result (binary, octal, decimal, etc.)
If you want to convert an improper fraction ^{7}⁄_{3} to a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator (7 : 3 = 2 with a reminder of 1). Write down the quotient 2. Next, write down a fraction with the remainder (1) as the numerator and the same denominator of the improper fraction (3), ^{7}⁄_{3} = 2^{1}⁄_{3}. To calculate a conversion, open the unit conversion view (the ruler icon or Ctrl + U), select a Unit conversion from the list (e.g., Degree Fahrenheit, Degree Celsius), and type a quantity.
There are people who think that Internet is Google. This is not true, but Google has become synonymous with easy searching and fast results. Google offers a built-in calculator among its many services.
It allows you to do: basic mathematical operations (2.5*3.5); percentages (50% of 220); units (45 cm to inches, 38 Celsius to Fahrenheit), and currency conversions (21 dollars into Euros); conversions between different numerical systems (12 in binary, 12 in octal, 12 in roman), quick plotting of a function, etc.
Wolfram Alpha is a computational search engine. Just go to Wolfram Alpha and type a fraction (9/6). It returns the equivalent irreducible fraction (3/2), a pie chart representing it, and its decimal form (1.5).
Wolfram Alpha can calculate just about anything. It can do arithmetic on fractions (1/2 * (3 + 3/5)), solve equations (solve x^2 − 7*x + 12=0), plot 2d and 3d functions or compute indefinite and definite integrals of one or more variables (integrate x^2 + sin^2 x dx).
