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.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
