*The preview release of Platform update 33 for Finance and Operations is now available (general availability is scheduled for March). This is part of a series highlighting features in the new platform update.*

## It Does The Math!!!

The ability to calculate inside of cells (instead of on external calculators) was a handy feature in AX2012 that we were sad to lose in the great D365 migration to the cloud.

Well put your 10-keys back in your deskdrawers because D365 does the math again!

When entering data into numeric cells, start your entry with the equals sign (=) and let D365 handle the rest.

# 1+1 = 2

# (2×3) + (4×5) = 26

## It Even Does The Advanced Math!!!

Dynamics recognizes pi, e, factorials, logarithms and trig functions. A complete list of the supported math expressions can be found here.

# 5! (5x4x3x2x1) = 120

# Cos(pi) + ln(e) = 2

The supported math expressions don’t include imaginary numbers (remember *i* ?). *Fortunately, accountants have been handling imaginary numbers on their own for centuries.*
