bc: Command line calculator

If you run a graphical desktop environment, you probably point and click your way to a calculator when you need one. The Fedora Workstation, for example, includes the Calculator tool. It features several different operating modes that allow you to do, for example, complex math or financial calculations. But did you know the command line also offers a similar calculator called bc?

The bc utility gives you everything you expect from a scientific, financial, or even simple calculator.
