It requires supercomputer to do these. You can do sums if you wish on your calculator on your computer, too. (Please don't take it otherwise. Try to follow what I've said.)

In my opinion it would inefficient (no offense meant), as their is an infinite amount of calculations possible. A simple script could do all these calculations inherently with alot less memory usage, saving alot more memory than a page for every calculation you could think of. This is different then their being an virtually infinite amount of books for wikibooks, or potential articles for wikipedia, in that a simple program could do it alot more efficently. Plus, in the program, theirs less risk of error, than having everybody be able to change the result of the function. To add even more to the immense work load, to manually redirect all the different ways to express an opereation to one page would take alot of work. I mean how many ways can you write 2 + 2, 2+2, 2 + 2, 2+2=, 2 + 2 =, 2+2 =, 2 plus 2 =, 2 plus 2 equals, two plus two equals, and more. This creates an incredible amount of work, especially if every article needs it(unless theirs a way to get different formats to automatically redirect to the page they represent).
