Formula when i know the GST total 2017-10-31
From Duncan:
HI - I've added up the GST from a pile of receipts and would like to know what the total cost of goods would be without GST. I don't want to add up 100's of receipts again with the cost before GST but I do need this total cost. i.e.) I know I paid $400 GST, what would the formula be to find out the cost of what I purchased before taxes? Your help is much appreciated!

Acreage calculation 2009-10-29
From Angela:
I am appraising a small portion of property for a right of way for a new sewer line. I have appraised many similar projects in the past; however the engineer always calculated the exact acreage and/or dimensions of the parcel being taken. My survey states the following: "141 linear ft. of 25' permanent R/W. I divided the linear feet x 12 and mult. by 25 to get the square footage, but it just doesn't seem right. Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

How accurate is the following calculation? 2008-09-03
From Craig:
Given that these numbers are only accurate to 2 decimal places, how accurate is the following calculation?

1.73 - 2.16 + 0.08 + 1.00 - 2.23 - 0.97 + 3.02 = 0.47

How do I work out the accuracy?

A one pass calculation of standard deviation 2007-03-19
From Murtaza:
Hi I searched the listings but couldn't find what i am looking for. I have a dataset and i am allowed only 1 pass through it. At the end of this pass i must have the mean and standard deviation. Calculating the mean is easy as also demonstrated in your listings. I think the same can be done for standard deviation as well. But the doubt that i have is this :- Will the calculated standard deviation be sequence dependent ? i.e. if i change the order in which the data items enter the system, will the std deviation also change ?? Thanks in advance Murtaza

Calculations 2002-12-15
From Mahdi:
This problem is rather general, but it usually makes a lot of problems. I almost have no difficulty in math and physics questions, but unfortunately I'm not at all accurate in simple one or two digit calculation. I even sometimes make silly mistakes in simple sums like 7+4=12 or 4+5=11! Is there any effective way to reduce these mistakes?

A calculation with 6 numbers 2001-06-16
From Edwin:
I'm asked to come with, and program (in Ansi -C) an algorithm that calculates all the possible results of a calculation with 6 numbers and one result. For example: I want all calculations with the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8, 2, 9, and with a result of 786. all numbers may be used once, arithmetical operations allowed are + - / *, fractions are not allowed. The problem here is what is a fast method to do this (i.e. what's algorithm that can to this).
