Looking for free form calculator - Mac Software Discussions on AppleInsider Forums

Posted: April 1, 2007 7:34AM in Mac Softwareedited January 2014

I am looking for a calculator that can do free form calculations, i.e. I want to type 1/(x+1) but not have it on a line, but shown as it actually is like in Graphing Calculator in OS9 or as one writes its on paper. I prefer not to spend $60 on graphing calculator

Grapher in Tiger does a good job of making equations for reports but it doesnt calculate them! Err!

How about the graphing program in the Mac?

in the Applications folder, then the Utilities folder.

It's a fine graphing calculator, but I enter in very long calculations and I wish to compute them instead of using my TI-89. I want it to tell me what, for example, (3(53)+2)^3/(34-ln(21)^3 + log(42) + sin^2(52) - 1/(2-64)^4 is, but I'd prefer not a line calculator. I want it to tell me it equals -4.184871

Nevermind. I am not observant. Apparently entering an expression and pressing return evaluates it on the left. This is exactly what I need it to do. I kept looking for an equals sign of 2+2=4
