 After I downloaded a unit conversion calculator in app world, I swiped down while using the native PB calculator and found a tip, scientific, and unit converter! Nice find!082212 10:51 PMLike 2

Lots and lots of online calculators. This even has a tip calculator for politicians no matter where in the world you come across them. (probably not)
Just going to martindalecenter.com has a lot more besides calculators.082312 01:28 AMLike 0  I was unaware at the beginning so then I got Unit converter, but just so many options and unnecessary conversions in there, made me get rid of it.
I am back to the Native calculator. It's fabulous and I believe it's a TAT thing..082312 04:07 AMLike 0 
The native calculator on their phones (at least on my 9650 OS6) are seriously flawed. They don't follow the basic order of operations math rules:
Enter 3 + 4 x 2 on both the PB and BB calculators. The PB gives the correct answer of 11. The BB calculator gives the incorrect answer of 14.
The order of operation rules are:
Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses.
Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.
Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.
I would not trust any calculations on the native BB phone calculators.
Ariel082312 08:10 AMLike 0  There's nothing about not trusting the BB phone calculators. They are not even giving wrong calculations.
It's a basic calculator and you should know better that parentheses, etc. are not applicable on a basic calculator. You cannot enter an equation in the BB phone calculator whereas the PlayBook let's you enter equations.
3 + 4 x 2 = 14 is correct and so is 3 + 4 x 2 = 11...082312 08:34 AMLike 3

3 + 4 x 2 should not equal 14, ever.Scotter75 likes this.082312 09:38 PMLike 1 
PS. I still couldn't figure out how you came up with that crack answer until I googled it and saw the breakdown of equation. Then remembered high school. Then remembered grade school. Then I remembered why I liked playing sports. I was good at that.
PSS. If anyone needs a used keyboard missing the number keys that I thought were my friends, please feel to let me know.
PSSS. Can't blame my brain. It already knew it was dumb.082312 09:51 PMLike 0  Different calculators follow different orders of operations. Most nonscientific calculators without a stack work left to right without any priority given to different operators, for example giving082412 01:08 AMLike 0

I was mistaken with my Windows basic calculator statement. If you choose the "Scientific" view, it gives you the correct answer of 11. If you choose the "Standard" view, it gives the answer of 14.082412 09:21 AMLike 0  BB10 is not wrong because BB10 calculator gives the answer as 11. You mean OS7 and Windows are wrong. Well even they aren't..082412 11:28 AMLike 0
 I just realized that not only do I suck at math, but I am horrified to think I might have overpaid for something in my pathetic lack of math rules life. Holy crap.

082412 05:39 PMLike 0  I think you know exactly what it is that is wrong with that, and your comment merely serves to demonstrate that you know how a simple, singleregistered, nonRPN calculator is implemented. So noted.082412 05:53 PMLike 0
