It appears this issue was reported 7 months ago but it has not been resolved. It may have been fixed but the issue resurfaced with the latest update.

The issue is how the computer is internally processing the probability of success, p, for the binomial calculator.

I enter 1/6 for p, and the computer is internalizing this as 0.16667. The result is the probabilities are not coming out right in the fifth decimal place which are affecting sums up to four decimal places using these numbers.
