## What is a calculator?

A calculator is a device that performs mathematical calculations. Calculators come in many different forms, including handheld devices, desktop computers, and smartphones. Basic calculators can perform basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Scientific calculators can perform advanced mathematical operations such as logarithms, trigonometry, and statistics.

Calculators can be either analog or digital. Analog calculators use mechanical gears and levers to perform calculations, while digital calculators use electronic circuitry and a digital display. Digital calculators can be operated using buttons, touchscreens or even virtual buttons on the computer.

Calculators have many different use cases, they can be used by students in school, professionals in different fields, as well as by everyday individuals for a wide range of tasks such as balancing a checkbook, determining a mortgage payment, or calculating the total cost of a purchase with sales tax.
