Mathematical Expression

Mathematical expressions use the following operators:

 Operator Meaning Example + Plus 2 + 2 will give the result 4 - Minus 3 - 2 will give the result 1 * Multiplication 3 * 2 will give the result 6 / Division 12 / 4 will give the result 3 ^ Power 2 ^ 3 will give the result 8

Notes:

• The order of operators is the normal mathematical order. To give certain operator priority, enclose it with ()

For example:
<LET:result = {CALCULATE} 1 + 2 ^ 3 + 5> will give the result 14
<LET:result = {CALCULATE} (1 + 2) ^ 3 + 5> will give the result 32
<LET:result = {CALCULATE} (1 + 2) ^ (3 + 5)> will give the result 6561
<LET:result = {CALCULATE} 1 + 2 ^ (3 + 5)> will give the result 257
• By default, fraction numbers have two (2) decimal points. You can change it to 1 or 3 or any other number using the Advance Options. See the "FormattingWholeNumber" and "FormattingDecimalPoint" settings in the "Settings" topic for more information.
