# MathParser - Math Formula Parser

, 20 Jan 2008 CPOL
 Rate this:
MathParser is a class that can calculate the result of mathematic operations given as string such as "3+5/2-3*(1+3)". It can also calculate the result of parametric formulas such as 3A+5B/2C. Calculation is made by operation order(/,*,-,+) and parenthesis rule.

## Introduction

`MathParser` is a class that can calculate the result of mathematic operations given as `string `such as "`3+5/2-3*(1+3)`". It can also calculate the result of parametric formulas such as `3A+5B/2C`. Calculation is made by operation order(/,*,-,+) and parenthesis rule. In some projects, users want to create a formula dynamically. This is a useful method for calculating the values of these types of formulas.

## Background

The basic idea of this code is parsing the `string `correctly, converting values to decimal and calculating them with the operator.

## Using the Code

Using the code is pretty simple.

For basic use, developers should call the `calculate `method by passing the formula.

```MathFunctions.MathParser mp = new MathFunctions.MathParser();
decimal result = mp.Calculate("5/(1-2)+(3+(2/1))");```

For parametric use, developers should declare parameters before calling the `calculate `method, then call the method passing the formula as seen below:

```MathFunctions.MathParser mp = new MathFunctions.MathParser();
decimal result = mp.Calculate("3D-2B/C+(A-B)");```
