GNOME Calculator is an application that solves mathematical equations.
Though it at first appears to be a simple calculator with only basic
arithmetic operations, you can switch into Advanced, Financial, or
Programming mode to find a surprising set of capabilities.
The Advanced calculator supports many operations, including:
logarithms, factorials, trigonometric and hyperbolic functions,
modulus division, complex numbers, random number generation, prime
factorization and unit conversions.
Financial mode supports several computations, including periodic interest
rate, present and future value, double declining and straight line
depreciation, and many others.
Programming mode supports conversion between common bases (binary, octal,
decimal, and hexadecimal), boolean algebra, one’s and two’s complementation,
character to character code conversion, and more.
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install GNOME Calculator
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara) and Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
