Description Stephen Rasku 2002-12-17 01:48:35 EST
Description of problem:

Most scientific calculators have an engineering notation.  You should be able to
configure kcalc to use engineering notation.  In engineering notation, the
exponent is always a multiple of 3.  For example, the scientific notation number
3e+08 would be displayed as 300e+06.  This makes it easy to determine how many
million, billion, trillion, etc. my calculation worked out to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Multiply 3000*9000
Actual results:

It displays 2.7e+07.

Expected results:

If engineering notation was configured, it would display 270.e+e07
Comment 1 Stephen Rasku 2002-12-17 01:49:53 EST
That should be 270.e+06.
