Enter equations into the program to get solutions or formats that can be entered into spreadsheets and other files.
The program is easy to use with menus that feature instructions as well as hints and tips for formatting equations. However, there are a lot of details that you need to get through in order to complete the equations. The numbers, letters, and symbols on the screen are somewhat overwhelming at first, but once you understand how to create equations, they aren't as striking. All of the tools that you need are located at the top of the screen so that you have the remainder of the screen as a blank slate to calculate and format equations.
The program is accessible with many types of systems, which is a benefit so that you aren't limited as to what kind of system you have to install on your device. Load times are fast, but saving could be improved. You'll also spend a bit of time in transferring information to spreadsheets and other files. Shorter equations often transfer faster than those that are lengthy. When you enter the equation or create the equation, you can change the information to get a different answer or see how the answer will change based on the different information that you enter. You can also move around parts of the same equation. There are tabs with features for quick access that are parts of equations that are used the most. You can customize some of the tabs to include the information that you use the most with the equations that you create. You can also change the font that is used as well as the colors of the letters, numbers, and symbols so that each equation is easier to see.
