Cool, useful calculator

I’ve recently been using a very cool calculator that can be accessed in Terminal.

To open the calculator, open Terminal and type “bc”, then hit “return.”

When in bc, +, -, *, and / all act as you would expect. ^ is used to raise something to a power.

The thing I love here is that you can assign variables. just use an = in between the two values.

I just tried a making up quick interest calculator (as pictured.) We’d love to see what you come up with. Let us know if you find any cool ways to use this command line calculator!
