Guidelines to use the calculator

When entering numbers, do not use a slash: "/" or "\"

Do not enter units such as cm, inch, m, ft, etc...

Enter all problems without the unit. Then, after the calculator give you the answer, put it next to the answer.


(x1, y1) = (17 cm, 12 cm)

(x1, y1) = (9 cm, 6 cm)

Enter 17 in the box that say x1

Enter 12 in the box that say y1

Enter 9 in the box that say x2
