Yes: If the Finance app is the current app, then using the [a b/c] key to find a mixed number for Steve's example (5 3/4 + 11 7/9 = 17 19/36) fails. It says it's 17+8/15, which is wrong.

Unless you're in the Finance app. Or if you set a display mode other than Standard. Or if the fraction contains more than a few digits. But only a nut would worry about those things ever happening. Wink
