More Dynamic Calculators in Wolfram|Alpha
Remember those dynamic calculators we mentioned back in November?
Well, they’re back… with more features! We’ve released a whole new batch of calculators that cover some different areas of math.
For those who don’t remember, in November, we released calculators capable of computing integration, limits, date differences, and more. With this new slew of calculators, we are covering some other commonly asked math concepts, like vector and matrix manipulation, GCD, LCM, inverses of functions, linear approximation of functions, 3D plotting, base conversions, and currency conversion.
In the following example, we have the base conversion calculator. If you are unsure how to ask Wolfram|Alpha to do a base conversion, just ask something general like “base conversion” or “show me how to convert a base” and you’ll be brought to this calculator, where you can choose a starting and ending base, as well as the number that needs converting.
In this release, we’ve also added some pretty cool matrix calculators. Unsure how to ask Wolfram|Alpha about matrices? Just type in the general concept you’re looking for (i.e. “determinant”, “hermitian conjugate of a matrix”, or “addition of matrices”) and away you go!
Thanks to another great addition, converting currency on Wolfram|Alpha has never been easier!
There are many other calculators that have been added, and more will be added in the near future, so stay tuned!
