*SUMMARY: Perform basic math, trigonometric functions, equation solving, and more with the Bing search engine.*

Need to perform some simple calculations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division?

Just enter the calculation into Microsoft's Bing search engine such as **23*46** or **225/15** and you'll see the results (**1,058** and **15**, respectively). However, there's much more you can do, including solving simple algebra equations.**Trigonometry:** Need to perform trigonometric functions such as sine, cosine, and tangent, as well as hyperbolic functions? The following operators are supported:

Hyperbolic tangents? No problem with Bing

*sin, cos, tan, cot, sec, csc, arc sin, arc cos, arc tan, arc cot, arc sec, arc csc, hyperbolic sin, hyperbolic cos, hyperbolic tan, hyperbolic cot, hyperbolic sec, hyperbolic csc, sinh, cosh, tanh*

Example searches:**cos 90 degrees** = 0**sin 45 degrees** = 0.707107**hyperbolic tan 90** = 1**Answers to questions:**

Example searches:**speed of light** **speed of sound****Parenthesis:**

Change the operation order using parenthesis.

Example searches:**25*5+2**=127**25*(5+2)**=175**Other functions and operators:**

* Use the *^* symbol for exponentiation.

* Use *% of* to get a percentage of a number.

* Use *sqrt* to get the square root of a number.

* Use *ln* for log base e, or *log* for log base 10.

* Use *!* to get the factorial of a number. You can use this in an equation, but just entering a number and an exclamation point may not work.

Example searches:**2^16** = 65,536**20% of 200** = 40**sqrt 10000** = 100**log 1000000** = 6**4 + 5!** = 124**0 + 5!** = 120**Constants**

Constants *pi*, *e*, and *g* are supported in equations - you cannot type them separately to get the resulting constant. However, as with the factorial function, you can enter a query like so: *pi + 0*

Example searches:**pi+0** = 3.141593**ln e** = 1**g+0** = 6.67300 * 10^-11 m^3 kg^-1 s^-2 0**Equation with one unknown constant**

Bing can perform basic equation solving with one unknown constant. Constants can be any letter except *e* and *g* as these are already defined.

Let Bing do some of your Algebra homework...

Example searches:**a^2 + 2a + 1 = 225**: a=-16, a=14**x^2 = 225**: x=-15, x=15**log z = 2.653213**: z=450.000504

You may find a few errors with this tool. For example, the equation **d! + 0 = 3628800** failed to provide the result of 10.
