Google.com has advanced searching capabilities like if you type in Google "how many days are there in a year" Google Calculator will work it out and tell you e.g. "5+5" or "5*5"

Key:
- Minus
/ Divide
* Times
5Squared = Squared
5cubed = Cubed

Did anybody realise Google has a Calculator?

There are at least two 200 plus pages books about Google and the incredible feats/searches which can be carried out using it...:-)

I have the How to Do Everything with Google book at the moment, which is written by three Google employees/

"5+5" or "5*5"

Why are you puzzled, they work okay for me?

Are you by any chance mistaking this as the answer to "how many days are there in a year".

If so it is a simple misunderstanding, these are other examples of questions you can type into the Google search bar.

>>"how many days are there in a year" Google Calculator will work it out and tell you e.g. "5+5" or "5*5">>

That's precisely what you have written...:-)

In any case there's two possible answers.

..that's precisely what was written...

I agree that is what was written but not, I believe, what was meant, admittedly it could have been phrased better, but I am sure you understand what BEN MARSHALL meant to say.

BEN MARSHALL 18:09 12 Dec 05

Thank you for supporting me Stuartli, Admittedly Phono I did not phrase it correctly, sorry for any inconvenience.

And here was me thinking I was supporting you, I understood what you were saying and was just trying to explain.

Oh well!

I am disappointed that I seem to be taking the blame for another's misunderstanding of your initial post.
