Asked this in the tech forms, but got no reply so I'll try my luck in GD.

I need a program that will calculate linear functions.
Sort of like I type in "2/3+3/4=X/12" and X=17 comes out.
I thought that Excel might do it but it seems that it doesn't.

Also can somebody recommend a good program to save streaming video?

I would prefer free stuff, but I am willing to pay.

Thanks in advance

It's called 'algebra.' Most people take it in high school.

I'm feeling a computer induced brain aneurysm coming on - you want a what for what?

Excel does that. Look again.

Thanks for the smartass remarks, I know how to calculate it, but I have about 6000 to do.
Since I will double check the answers, it will take far too much time.

I searched for it but couldn't find it.
Could you please tell me?

There used to be a good, free mathematics program called Euler but I haven't seen it in like 8-9 years.

Looked up Euler because I liked it soo much. Was so easy to use. Found this program, called Yacas (Yet another computer algebra system)

yacas.sourceforge.net/yacas.html
