Why is it putting the whole problem divided by 118 when I want it to be 59 over 118?

What I mean:  X/100 * 59/118   What it's saying:  X/100*59 

                        (X is variable).                                    118

\(\frac{x}{100}\times\frac{59}{118}=\frac{\frac{x}{100}}{1}\times\frac{59}{118}=\frac{\frac{x}{100}\times 59}{1\times 118} =\frac{\frac{x}{100}\times 59}{118}\)  smiley

Bro thanks! So it's basically just the same thing?

Yep! Sometimes this calculator does funny things but it gets the job done!

In this case it is the same thing but the calculator is using correct order of operation.

X/100*59/118   

 

 

 

(X/100)*(59/118)
