Household Calculator is a general purpose ergonomic calculator which combines use simplicity and calculation power. Household Calculator handles main arithmetic operations with two operands, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and complex formulas with unlimited number of operations and operands. For example, you can type in Edit Window such formula (12.55+10.05+8.45+17.35)/30)*0.7-(13.45+15.76+2.05)*0.33.

If you want to be completely sure in the result, use parentheses. A result number in the Result Window can be copied into Edit Window by clicking Result button. Sometimes it is useful during calculations.
For example factorial button is absent, but you can easily calculate 10! by typing formula 1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10 or by series 2*3, =, Result, *4, =, Result, *5, =, Result, *6, =, Result, *7, =, Result,*8, =, Result, *9, =, Result, *10, =, imitating "old style calculators".
Calculation History Window has unlimited length. Use a scroll bar to navigate the window with log history. You can save the calculation history into text file or print it. Before this you can change size and style of the font in History Window.
