### What is GNOME Calculator?

Calculator is an application that solves mathematical equations and is suitable as a default application in a GNOME Desktop environment.

What Calculator is:

- A tool for calculating mathematical equations

- Uses standard mathematical notation where possible (so users do not have to learn the application when they already know maths)

- Easy enough to use for simple maths (add, subtract, multiply, divide)

- Powerful enough for mid-level mathematics (though not at the expense of being easy for simple mathematics)

- Fast to load and responsive to input

- Appropriately sized to fit into standard screen resolutions (e.g. netbooks)

- Fully accessible

- Well documented

- Integrated into the GNOME Desktop

What Calculator is not:

- It does not emulate any existing calculator interfaces, hardware or software (use those calculators if you want this behaviour)

- It is not a power-tool for professional mathematicians (professionals should use a specialist application)

- It is not a programming language (programmers should use a programming language)
