Error is reproducable:
Selecting a scientific mode result from ANS history
treats "e" as the constant e and performs inline
multiplication.

Example:
2*10^16 [ENTER]
[ANS] ==> 2.000000e+016 [ENTER] ==> 21.43656365692

    The above description doesn't seem to be exactly right. The
    "ans" fuction always seems to work. However, Peter is
    correct in that you cannot enter something like "2.000e+016"
    in graphcalc and have it be interpreted correctly. I agree
    this is a bug of sorts, and I will see what I can do to fix
    this.
