We may have come across **OneNote** as a tool which enables one to save notes easily and quickly. But how many of us know that with **OneNote** we will be able to solve mathematical problems? The response to this question may mostly be in the negative.

If it is so, then this is the right time to know and understand how to calculate simple math quickly in OneNote.

**OneNote 2010** developed by Microsoft as part of the **Microsoft Office 2010 suite** has an inbuilt feature to solve various simple mathematical problems.

To validate this, simply type a simple mathematical equation on the OneNote page and press the enter key. You will find that **OneNote** automatically computes the result to the given equation. **OneNote can also compute mathematical problems** that you calculate using your scientific calculator consisting **radians, logarithms** and **antilogarithms**, **COS, SIN** and much more. Using **OneNote** you can find the remainder with the help of the mod function and a solution to factorial based problems within seconds.

Also, problems involving the **Greek alphabets** may also be computed using **OneNote**. For calculations involving **Greek alphabets**, the symbols which are provided under the symbol menu may be used. The different operations and functions that may be computed using **OneNote** are as follows.

For addition function, the plus sign may be used. For example – **7+7**. For subtraction function, the minus sign may be used. For example **– 7-7**. For multiplication function, the asterisk sign may be used. For example **– 7*7**. For division function, the forward splash may be used. For example **– 7/7.** For Percentage function, the percent sign may be used.

**For example – 70%**. For factorial calculation, the exclamation sign may be used. For example, 7!. For the exponentiation function, the caret sign may be used. For example, **7^6.** For calculating the returns in absolute value of a particular number,** ABS with prefix** to the number may be used. To calculate the arccosine returns of a particular number, **ACOS with prefix to the number may be used**. To calculate the arcsine returns of a particular number, ASIN with prefix to the number may be used. To** calculate the arctangent returns of a given number**, ATAN with prefix to the number may be used.

To calculate the cosine returns of a particular number,** COS with prefix to the number** may be used. To convert a radian angle to a degree, **DEG in prefix **to the **radian angle** may be used. For calculating the natural logarithm of a particular number, **LOG in prefix** to the particular number may be used. For computing logarithm 2 and logarithm 10 of a given number, **LOG2 and LOG10** may be used in prefix to the number.

To calculate the tangent value of a given number, the **prefix TAN** may be used. To convert a degree angle to radian, the **prefix RAD** may be used before the number. To **calculate the sine returns of a particular number**, the prefix **SIN** may be used before the given angle. To **calculate positive square root** of a number, **SQRT in prefix** to the given number may be used.

To conclude, mathematical problems may be solved easily and quickly using **OneNote 2010**. So, not only is OneNote 2010 a magnificent note taking tool, but it also has the ability to solve various mathematical problems.
