With the QuickCalc calculator, an interface that looks and functions like a hand-held calculator, you can perform mathematical, scientific, and geometric calculations, convert units of measurement, manipulate the properties of objects, and evaluate expressions.
Use QuickCalc directly as you would with a desktop calculator, or use it transparently within a command or the Properties palette.
Enter expressions in QuickCalc using standard mathematical rules of precedence; review and retrieve computations from the History area; and understand the rules for using imperial units: length, area, and volume.
In the Units Conversion area of QuickCalc, you can obtain equivalent values for different units of measurement.
The Variables area of QuickCalc stores calculator variables that you can access as needed. Calculator variables can either be constants or functions.
