Performs instant calculations on your data

The `Math Column`

allows you to perform instant calculations on the data in your table. You can then bind it to a component in your app and see the output instantly.

Once you've added the `Math Column`

, you need to configure your calculation. As you start typing in the `Configuration`

field, Glide will guess which column you are referring to and add a new replacement field.

This means you don't have to use the full column name in your calculation. For example, instead of using the formula:

`(Item Price+(Item Price * Tax)) * Number of items`

you could just write: `(i+(i*t))*n`

and then use the replacement fields to tell the Math Column what `i`

`t`

and `n`

refer to.

You can reassign your replacements to different columns whenever you like:

The Math Column works with the following symbols:

ADDITION
**+**** -** SUBTRACTION

*****

MULTIPLICATION
**/**

DIVISION
**^**

EXPONENTIATION
**()**

PARENTHESIS
`log()`

LOGThe Math Column only accepts the above symbols. It will throw an error if you try to use another symbol.
