Math on your Kindle:
From the homescreen, you can do various math operations. Note: Kindle does experience floating decimal errors sometimes.
Press the Keyboard button top open up the search box and type an equation like so:
Code:
`1+1`
And press Enter. This will display:
Code:
`1+1=2`
as the first search result, as well the other search results under it.
More complex equations are available as well:
Code:
`(5+4+3+5)/4=4.25`
Code:
`3^7=2187`
I don't have a floating point decimal error example on hand wight now.

Doing things like:
Code:
`7>6=76`
Code:
`23|60=2360`
so it's not the best, but it works for a quick calculator!

THIS MEANS DON'T BUY A CALCULATOR APPLICATION FOR YOUR KINDLE!

Works from most screens. Also is typing 'is' into Search my items considered a short cut. That gives you the time and date. Also, what about @help and so on.
What does @print do?

Well that is really cool! I already bought one but its fine that I did cuz it has the trig and calculus functions that I need (and costed 99¢) but this would be easier to use I'm sure.

You can't change the "screen brightness" on a K4. It doesn't have a light to change the brightness of.

 05-07-2014, 04:04 PM #100 bounce Connoisseur   Posts: 93 Karma: 13892 Join Date: Mar 2010 Device: Ipad, Kindle 7 Is there a method in the way this Kindle decides to default to full definition or highlight when making a selection? I thought it would be the last method used, but it seems to be random? Is there a way to have it default, to say, highlight? Cheers
