In news:Xns969EBB3361DAnotwhere@198.161.157.145,

Umm... What problem? The answer is 32... If you divide it by 32 the number
32 still shows because that is the answer. Same thing if you 16 / 4 the same
number will still appear there. I'm not sure what your problem is but I am
no mathmatician so what am I missing. It seems to work just fine here?

What answer do you get? I get the answer 32 on my XP Pro calculator, and
AFAIK that is correct.

No, you are not alone. We have all had to make that calculation at some
stage.

She thinks the 32 is not going off the screen. 32^2=1024. She doesn't
Could be attributed to imbecility.

news:uv85nqSkFHA.4000@TK2MSFTNGP12.phx.gbl:

Thank you for your kind responses.

Just to clarify; I AM an idiot at times, this time was a "BIG TIME".

I was pressing the " = " button twice and received a " 1 " as when I
pressed it the first time the display did not change or flicker.

I usually use handheld calcs where the display will flicker before
returning a numeral that is the same as the divisor, as was the case in
my origianl calculation. Tried 16 / 4 and the result is the same, as it
should be.

Anybody else been in the Loser Club of the day? It isn't a nice place.

Thanks for your help. Sorry if I disrupted your day with a stupid
question.

Routine is the death of intelligence.

Regards,
Jenny.

All MS calculators are (in or since XP) are IEEE standard comnplient. That was the big upgrade for calc in XP.

No problem. It was an intriguing post that drew some lighthearted responses.

Moral of the story - use your own calculator and you will do fine

I don't think it's imbecility ( three to seven years old) in a technical sense. It is merely moronic (7 to 12 years) .

How goes it David? Was trying to lay her down 'easy' with one of my
euphemisms. Kinda useful doing those word lists nowadays - I try not to
write anything without using them. 8-)
You've classified idiots by their age groups, but it seems to extend to just
12 year olds. People get more moronic later. What comes after morons at
age 12?

A cretin is a disease from thryoid deficiency.

I've done imbicile and moron.

Idiots are those under 3.

I'm not sure there is a word for older. These are legal and medical terms that have gone out of fashion. But nightwalking was just made legal where I live (it was illegal to be outside at nighttime - noone was ever charged with this crime in Australia but if the police didn't like you in England in the good old days ... - these days they put their foot on your chest and pump 5 bullets into your head) so I expect it is still used in some Americian states.

Please, do not feel like a loser. We have all done some really funny dumb
things even if we don't allow ourselves to admit it to others. You provided
a lot of people with a chuckle. At least no one asked you if you are blond.
