Did you know;
That you can use Google as a calculator? Just type a sequence of numbers and the common math symbols into a Google search field and it will return the answer, e.g. type (say) 29+156 into a search field and hit 'Enter' (use - for minus, * for multiply, / for divide of course). In addition to the standard calculations you can also use the ^ symbol to raise to a higher power, e.g. 3^5 and % of to find the percentage of a number, e.g. 32% of 60. If you enter a more complex calculation without brackets Google will insert them for you, e.g. enter 2^3 -5*7/3+6 and the answer will be returned as (2^3) - ((5 * 7) / 3) + 6 = 2.33333333.
