npm install calculator cd calculator npm start
npm install -g calculator node-calc
When starting calculator, it starts a node repl with all of the following properties set as properties of the
All Math properties are replaced with
Math.(prop) so you can write
var f = func('f(x) = sin(x)') instead of
var f = func('f(x) = Math.sin(x)')
var f = func('f(x) = x*10 - 20') f(3) //returns 10 f = func('f(x, t) = Math.pow(x, 2) + t + 1') f(2, 4) // returns 9
([string|function], point to evaluate function)
derive('f(x) = x*x', 2) //evaluate derivative @ x = 2; returns 4
([string|function], lower limit, upper limit)
derive('f(x) = x*x', 0, 1) //evaluate definite integral from x = 0 to x = 1; returns .333 = 1/3
Set this property to determine how accurate the definite integral will be. Essentialy the "dx" in f(x)dx.
Set this property to determine the distance between an estimated answer and a whole number that you wish cli calc to return the rounded number.
This is useful when you know the answer is a whole number and you don't want something like
1.99999999998384 returned instead of
