Well, no. There is no such feature.
But you can exploit the Search Actions to do that in a way.

You need to have zenity installed to set this up.
Right click on the whisker menu button > properties > search actions.

pattern:

=

command:

sh -c 'echo %s | bc | zenity --text-info'

If you type in =2*3 and press enter, a dialog will show up with the result.

Not that I know off. I doubt that Mr. Gott would add such a feature. Nevertheless, you can try to ask for that feature. Developer has disabled issues on github so the only way to contact him is twitter or the comment section of his wordpress page.
