If you need an answer and cannot find a calculator Google does basic calculator functions. This includes your basic (+, -, *, /) as well as percentages and raising a number to a power. You can even do an equation such as the one in the example below.
If you wish to convert from quarts to gallons, going from English measurements to Metric such as miles to kilometers you can do that as well. Also a great use when converting from Fahrenheit to Celsius when you are away and need to know the temperature in a measurement you are familiar with.
More and more of us are ordering merchandise online. Many vendors when they ship the goods to you will email you with a tracking number of your shipment. You can track the shipment using Google. In the search bar enter the package tracking number. Google determines which carrier has the package and provides you with a link to the carrier status page for the shipment you are expecting where you can see where it is. I have used this to track letters that I sent requesting a return receipt as well.
As I mentioned earlier quite a few of us have Google set as our homepage. If you do, these queries can be done right from there. I am not suggesting that you set your homepage to Google. That is a personal choice.
These are just a few ways that you can use Google search for more than the typical internet search. If you wish to learn more about Google search or have other questions related to technology I am available at 917-572-3468.
