    I have Win7 Pro 64 Bit. I used the calculator the other day to get a quick answer to a fairly simple math problem: If it costs $2.45 for 2700 square inches, what is the cost per square inch? Dividing 2.45 by 2700 should give me.000907 but the calculator gave me 9.07. I tried a series of other simple math problems like this and all of the answers are wrong. Excel gives the correct answer; only calculator is wrong.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Thanks,
    Jan

    Mine gives me 9.07407407407 e-4. This is scientific notation. You would move the decimal point 4 places to the left ( e-4). The answer is correct. The calculator automatically displays scientific for small numbers such as this.
