If you do precisely the same key / button sequence in scientific mode, it gives the answer 24. Given that I use calculator in both modes, but most of the time just use whatever mode it re-opens in for a quick calculation, this is a bit of a worry... Never noticed it before. The behaviour is the same in the Windows 8 calculator too.
I can see why (with no parentheses available in "standard" view) but it's not exactly intuitive. Would help if the history automatically inserted parentheses where default operator sequence has been used.
