The brain is not up to maths at the best of times, but instant wanting to know has caused a run for the calculator.

We did have a large calculator, which a visitor has borrowed and not given back.
So likely its gone home? with them?

So we have resortrd to using the keyboard calculator, but cannot find or understand where the divide by button icon whatever looks like? the work puter doesnt seem to have a calculator button at all, but peach does.

I have struck this before, and gave up using the keyboard version, can someone explain to me why ? or where it is placed ? looks like?

plus and minus are central and located easily, just not x and divide? why?

/QUOTE]

Divide is "/". Multiply is "*". (shift/8). The "dot over line over dot" divide sign isn't a common character. "X" has too many mathematical uses that it shouldn't be used past primary school. ;)
