i'm looking for a linux program similar to Mathcad.

something that will show inline equations and perform the math based on predefines variables. even more i would like it to be able to show/hide entire sections. or maybe select what calculation are to be performed based on the information provided

it seems like LaTeX might be a good choice, only i'm not quite understanding how to get it actually perform the calculations, and i dont really like the idea of having to program everything (i'm not a programmer...)
