Cc: Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

  1. Start Calculate.
  2. Enter "82". You will be told that the result of 82 is 64.
  3. Enter "8-1". You will be told the result of the calculation "8-1" is 0.125.

The exponent needs to be raised in the history view in the second case, just like the first.

Seen in OLPC 12.1.0 os11/Calculate-40, 11.3.1 os885/Calculate-37.
