Mon, 12 Dec 2016 20:35:59 +0000http://mathblag.wordpress.com/?p=119#comment-157923 would have to be correct as the order of operations prescribes multiplications and divisions before additions and subtractions. The four function calculator simply evaluates 3+4 once it is entered, then multiplies the sum it calculates by 7. However the scientific calculator gets the entire expression in ram and applies the order of operations finding that 4×5=20 then adding the 20 which replaces 4×5 to the previous addend of 3, to get 23
