In scratch complex calculations get thickened fast. Example:
(((((((((((6543.4) - (3)) / (8)) - (3)) / (86)) - (74)) / (038)) * (38)) - (4)) - (3)) + (((((6) - (3)) / (5)) * (9)) / (8)))
I'm proposing one reporter block that does all of that.
Example:
([(6543.4 - 3) / 8) - 3) / 86) - 74) / 038) * 38) - 4) - 3) + ((6 - 3) / 5) * 9) / 8))])

It could do any sum involving the symbols “< > / * x + - ( )”
BUT I think we should keep the
([...] of (9))
block.

Maybe it can look like this:
(calculate ())
(I forgot how to color scratchblocks)
And it can be in the Operators category.

Yes, like that (did I fix it)
I think that if it looked like that then, yes, support.

Just implement it yourself.
No support.

Yes, but the problem the author is stating is that the blocks get too thick. Also, how can you implement it yourself when you’re not a scratch team member?

In the scratch editor, there is a block menu called “More Blocks”.
Click on it, and create a block.

define evaluate [Expression]
... // This block calculates the value
set [return v] to (evaluation)
It's that simple.

Yes, but you cannot make circular blocks like
(this one :: operators)

It's still workaroundable though.

I agree, theres many workarounds like this one:

 continue this hashtag if you live in australia [img]http://u.cubeupload.com/rabbitcarrots/FEDB1435D41540BFB9FB.jpeg[/img] is the image code xD oh and btw this siggy is from @Hellounicorns2    :cool:

1. It would be very hard to implement multiple () support
2. It would be very inaccessible to new scratchers
4. As hellounicorns2 said, you cannot make
(circular :: operators)
custom blocks.
5. What about people who needed a
(calculate () :: operators)
block but couldn't find my (or anyone else's) project with a
define evaluate [Expression]
... // This block calculates the value
set [return v] to (evaluation)
custom block for backpacking.

It's very simple to implement this.
I could probably do it in a few minutes.

okay then. Can you link me the project when you are done?

Your project couldn't do “5+(2+2)”
Let alone “(6543.4 - 3) / 8) - 3) / 86) - 74) / 038) * 38) - 4) - 3) + ((6 - 3) / 5) * 9) / 8))”

The block I'm proposing would be able to support infinite (or up until the project lags out) “()”'s

Example:
5+(3/(9+(2-(7/(2+(42-(4+8)))))))

Just be patient while I'm fixing it.
It should only take a few minutes.

Fixed

I thought you said it was simple? I did a see inside and it looks very complex

It is very simple.
If you think that it is “complex” in any way, then… well, I don't know what to say.
Anyways, I fixed it.

If you don't match parenthesis correctly, it doesn't work though.

So this:

Is simpler than this?
(calculate () :: operators)
And anyway that's going to be very hard to create for new scratchers

I never said it's simpler than that, but it is very simple.
I find your second comment very insulting to new scratchers like myself.
Any person that is semi-decent at programming would be able to create this.
