```This does not work.

If I 1 by 200 the right answer is 1/200 = 0.005

That is 1 / 2 X 102 = 50   What happens is the 1/2 division is
done first and then the multiplication.

To be blunt, you DO NOT HAVE SCIENTIFIC NOTATION.  Because if you
did then the sequence '2 X 102' would be handled as one number that
equals 200
instead of 2 times 100.   Let me suggest you use 2E+2 to make
clear it is a number, not a sequence of operations.

And while I have your attention let me point out that your
documentation on how to use the other buttons on the calculator are
written with the assumption that
I ALREADY know how they work.    I suggest you rewrite them based
on how the Windows calculator work so I could figure out what the
Ubuntu calculator buttons
do.
