How to use the app

To calculate expressions, you input numbers and operators(+,-,*,/,^) or functions using keyboard(D in the above figure).

* is multiplication , / is division and ^ is power operation(for example 2^3 is 3rd power of 2 and the result is 8). You can use a decimal point for the exponent numbers(numbers after ^).

In "Simple mode",√(square root) key is not available.

However you can calculate square root using ^ key. For example when you find the square root of 2 ,enter 2 ,^ ,( ,1 ,/ ,2 and put ) key at the end ,that is 2^(1/2) equals the square root of 2.

In "Advance mode",√ Key is available for square root calculation.

To delete input numbers ,formula and calculation result ,the key C ,CE and DEL are used. Tapping C key clears the contents of all textviews A,B and C. When you tap CE key ,the textview B is cleared. The DEL key undoes the last operation.

Tax key is used for calculation of value-added tax or consumption tax.
 When you tap the tax key ,the value in textview B is multiplied by setting tax rate and the result is shown in tax calculation textview C.
