If you read the OP he knows what modulo is. That's what it's usually for, but he said himself that it didn't perform mod. My guess is that the calculator isn't working.

EDIT: just read a few of the below posts, oops :( Should have realized what it was doing.

Okay so it seems like before you use the % thing, you have to perform a multiplication or division function first.

Typing in 2, /, 1, % results in 200..or 2*1*100, hitting it again brings up 20000, and then 2000000.

3, /, 1, % brings up 150, and then 7500, and then 375000..or 3 * 50, * 50, * 50, etc...

1, *, 3, %, brings up .03, .0003, .000003..

:confused:
