Google Calculator has been around now for the last three and a half years, so a post on this Google service isn’t exactly groundbreaking. However, I came across this article on lifehack.org while I was doing a little research for work yesterday afternoon. It reminded me of some cool conversion and calculation tricks I had messed around with in the past. At that moment I was just looking for a quick currency conversion, and the easiest way to accomplish this nowadays is Google’s Calculator shortcut. Satisfied with the quick conversion, I finished my research and then decided to kill a little time by messing around with Google Calculator.
Here are a bunch of fun problems that can be quickly solved by utilizing some cool Google calculation tricks:
