10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: sdewidt on May 24, '05 01:14:07PM

I don't know, but I think the problem is that two different methods of inputing the numbers are being talked about. In other words, if you input "1 + 2" and hit enter (or equals) you get "3". Then if you hit '*3' you get "9". But if you input "1 + 2 * 3" all on the same line and then hit enter you get "7", because it follows the standard order of operations. I think this is where the misunderstanding is coming from on the Ti calculators. I'm not sure about the Mac, since I don't have one in front of me right now.
