Decimal places stores the number of decimal places to add to the result. This setting is ideal for calculations which need to work out prices.

Calculation block

In a calculation, you can reference previous blocks. For example, if you wanted a formula that calculated the total based on the price and quantity, the formula would look like: Price * Quantity

Formulas may include parentheses () to change the order of operations, for example: (3 + 3) / 2

Numeric operators

  1. Use + to add together two numeric values. For example 2 + 2
  2. Use - to subtract two numeric values. For example Price - 2.00
  3. Use * to multiply two numeric values. For example Price * Quantity
  4. Use / to divide two numeric values. For example Bill Total / Total People Splitting The Bill
