♾️ Usage

Math.js is an extensive math library for JavaScript and Node.js. It features a flexible expression parser with support for symbolic computation, comes with a large set of built-in functions and constants, and offers an integrated solution to work with different data types like numbers, big numbers, complex numbers, fractions, units, and matrices. Powerful and easy to use.

Here is some examples, but to use this plugin on the full 100%, you have to read the official Mathjs documentation, and especially the expressions part as formula is the same thing as mathjs.evaluate method 🤫

Function evaluate accepts a single (in our case) expression or an array with expressions as the first argument and has an optional second argument containing a scope with variables and functions. The scope can be a regular JavaScript Object, or Map (JSON in our case). The scope will be used to resolve symbols, and to write assigned variables or function.

Example 1

formula: sqrt(x^y + r^k)
scope: {
  "x": 2,
  "y": 3,
  "r": 4,
  "k": 5
}
result: 32.12475680841802

Example 2

3
formula: cos(x deg)
scope: { "x": 45 }
result: 0.7071067811865476
