Transcript from the "Calculator Setup" Lesson
[00:00:45] We did one with the blog earlier where I gave you the picture and said code the thing. We're gonna do exactly that same kind of exercise here with this calculator. So this is the way the calculator is going to look. You'll see the calculator here. You'll see that at the top it's got sorta the area where the numbers are gonna go.
[00:01:03] As you click on the numbers and you type them in, they're gonna show up there on the top right, correct? We've got, a row of functions, so we have divide, multiply, subtract, and add. We have an equal sign. We have a backspace key, we have a clear key, and we have some numbers, right?
[00:01:21] Okay, so, according to the instructions here, as it says, a few things to know about this calculator. Here are some things we need to know. So we are gonna have to first of all look up some symbols for math, okay? Because clearly the divide key and multiply key and so forth, they are not here on your keyboard so we are gonna actually have to look these up and code those symbols.
So that's something we are gonna need to do. These calculator buttons, they're going to need to be clickable, right? We need to be able to click those buttons just like a regular calculator in real right life, right? You guys have actually worked with the actual calculator, right?
>> Jen Kramer: Those are still things. Okay, and it was a long time ago. And then there's some colors that are used in the design. Those are all spelled out for you here. I've given you all of the color codes and I told you that the overall width of this calculator is 400 pixels.
Okay? So, then I have a suggested approach down here at the bottom.
>> Jen Kramer: And so, what I've suggested is that we create a wrapper with a width of 400 pixels to set up the calculator. And we're going to determine how many rows and columns we need. And so we're gonna work through these instructions.
[00:03:06] We know that, but we haven't been given anything else in terms of how to code it. And we have to figure out all the rest of it on our own.
