<P>It is not possible to do simple calculations in the Paper's LaTeX. You can only write math expressions and that's pretty much it. In fact, simple calculations are not simply calculated even if you are using fully functional LaTeX editor. You will need additional packages (like <A href="https://www.ctan.org/pkg/fp" target="_self">fp</A>) and define new commands.</P>
