Hi,

Your Windows 10 calculator is set Standard mode that is why you are having a different result. For advance calculations, you can set your calculator to a different mode. For additional information about your calculator, you can check this article: Calculator in Windows 10.

Thank you.

Are you trying to say this is a feature and not a bug?

To be honest, this is really weak, as it is not a difference between "Scientific" math or "Standard" math, but it is purely wrong. The basic math rules state that in case of multiple calculations * and / are calculated before + and -, this is not science, but primary school knowledge...

What you're seeing has always been the case with garden-variety handheld calculators.  They perform operations in linear fashion, unlike "scientific" calculators that always follow the algebraic order of operations.   Many, and perhaps most, people  know nothing about the algebraic order of operations, despite having been exposed to it in school at one time or another.  For those people, the algebraic order would cause confusion and significant cognitive dissonance.   Of course, the reverse is true for those people rationally who expect the algebraic order.
