But, idea behind calculator is: in Standard mode any new operation it calculates as x += 1 or x *= 2, so new operation is applied to result of all previous operations. Which, personally, i don't like, because this can be achieved by pressing "=" button after every operation, but i can understand.
Anyway, problem to me is not this Standard vs Scientific (although using 2 different design algorithms in 1 program is usually really bad thing to do), but that History contains wrong equation. Which means that if you didn't check in which mode you are, result that you used can be wrong. Which can induce different set of problems.
48 is correct, as per natural [germanic based] language which is expressed left to right. same way you read a sentence, in the order presented.
it's 24 if it's "bodmas", but seeing as bodmas is younger than natural language it's absolutely not new math rules,
in fact it's the original and oldest math rules.
and btw: any accountant
1. will tell you 4 X 3 + 4 X 3 = 48, anything else and the auditors will have your skin.
2. in accounting brackets BRACES mean something completely different than others suggest,
.... i.e. 4 X 3 + (4 X 3) = 0 ... 4 X 3 + (4) X (3) = 48 ... 4 X (3 + 4) X 3 = -84
so those old rules are:
- still very much alive
- very important to the person that provisions the money for your pay/salary.
The simple calculator chains together what you are entering following the natural reading order. This has been known as the Arithmetic Order of Operations.
The Algebraic Order of Operations (FOIL, PEMDAS, et al) is followed by the scientific calculator; and is like "compiled" programming, in which you can declare an object anywhere within the class, before or after it is called.

I want to be somewhat near my family, at least for easy weekend trips. I don't think Kosovo qualifies...but the company doing the contract work is the same company doing contract work in Romania, so maybe it would give me an "in" for a position there when one opens.
The tax-excluded aspect of it is a big plus, of course.
