Error details

Error: Command line calculator 'bc' not found!

The “bc” is the command-line calculator for Linux. You can simply do calculations through your command-line. See some example here:

bc <<< 10*25
bc <<< 10-25


The solution is quite simple, install the utility ‘bc’ using YUM

yum install bc

That’s it 🙂
