However integer results are shown in exponential notation and the result does NOT represent the correct integer! Example: - Calculate 2^40. - The result 1.099511628×10^12 is shown which is the integer 1099511628000 - However the correct result is 1099511627776, not 1099511628000 A possible change which might solve this: Change the selection: - Binary - Octal - Decimal - Hexadecimal To: - Binary - Octal - Scientific decimal - Programmer decimal - Hexadecimal "Scientific decimal" would behave like it does today. "Programmer decimal" would behave the same way as Binary, Octal and Hexadecimal and display integers like 2^40 as 1099511627776, not as 1.099511628x10^12 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-calculator/+bug/1784274/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~desktop-packages Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~desktop-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
