It’s MUCH faster to operate the calculator from the keyboard than by clicking on it with the mouse. If you have a keyboard with a numeric keypad it’s super-quick to enter numbers, but you can use the number keys in the top row of your keyboard too.

Find the Calculator in the Applications folder, or use the Launch Pad. Click for more information on the Calculator.
