How do I do calculations?

You enter numbers and operators just like you do in a typical calculator and when you press the = sign the app automatically calculates the result and enters it after the = sign. You can use the result to do more calculations and chain more equations. You can use functions as part of your equations and even nest them within other functions.
Here are some examples:

  5.79 + 3.87 = 9.66 / 3.42 = 2.82456
  (146 - 34) * 84 = 9408
  146 - 34 * 84 = -2710 * cos(1.025) = -1406.75798
  abs(tan(6)) = 0.29101

Operators & Precedence

Operators are evaluated in the following order: ** * / + -. You can override this order by using () around operators with lower precedence.
Here are some examples:

  5 + 4 / 2 = 7
  (5 + 4) / 2 = 4.5

How do I add notes?

You can type notes anywhere in the file, even right after a calculation. When starting a calculation begin a new line by pressing the enter key. If you enter notes in the same line as the calculation but before the = sign the you will get a ?! indicating an error. Starting the calculation in the next line will get you results!
Here are some examples:

  15.35 * 4 = 61.40 inches of plywood, need to confirm
  15.35 inches * 4 = ?! won't work

Why do I get a ?! after pressing = sign?

If there is an error in the equation you will get a ?! after the = sign. You can fix the error and type the = sign again to get the result. You can turn off the ?! in the settings. The following symbols are allowed in calculations: $ ¢ £ € ¥
Here are some examples:

  5.35 euros * 4 = ?! won't work
  $5.75 * 7 = 40.25
  850000 - ¥784253 = 65747

Why do I get a NaN after pressing = sign?

NaN stands for 'not a number' meaning the result is undefined. For example if you try to find the square root of a negative number the app will return a NaN.
Here are some examples:

  acos(5) = NaN
  sqrt(-4) = NaN
