Bug (or feature?) in CAS

Not a Problem

Hi!


If i try to calculate 1.0085^210 in the CAS-calculator it fails because Geogebra CAS converts 1.0085 to 2017/2000 and therefore ends up with a troublesome fraction. If I do the same calculation in regular Geogebra (geogebra.org/graphing) i don't get this problem. Is this a bug or intended? Is there a way to force CAS to use decimal form?

if you type the calculation and click on the 2nd tool of the CAS Toolbar instead of clicking on Enter or the 1st tool, you get a decimal result

Thanks for answering, and this is the solution if you've got the actual Geogebra app or program installed. I need/would like to use the web version though and there i can't find the toolbar you're referrring to.
