  • {math expression} Mathematical expression to be evaluated.

Operator  Description
--------  -----------
()        Precedence
*         Multiplication
/         Division
%         Modulus
+         Addition
-         Subtraction

Anything enclosed in the parens will be evaulated first. Then all the
multiplication, division and modulus operators are evaulated left to right.
Then addition and subtraction are evaluated left to right.

/math {result} {3 + 5 * 4}
Would place the number 23 in a variable called "result."

/math {result} {(3 + 5) * 4}
Would place the number 32 in a variable called "result."

/math {result} {$Result + 1}
Adds 1 to variable "result."

/math {result} {5 % 3}
The modulus operator returns the remainder of a division as an integer. This
would place the number 2 in the variable "result." 5 divided by 3 leaves a
remainder of 2.
