    Will not 1 + 1 but using the build-in calculator I get two different answer for the same input.
    Try this on you WP8.1

    14 x 3600 + 7 x 60 + 5 = 3024425 (wrong)

    Now try in landscape mode.

    14 x 3600 + 7 x 60 + 5 = 508225 (correct)

    Whats going on.

    Probably order of operations.

    You are forgetting something. The landscape mode activates the scientific calculator shock had many complex functions. With scientific calculator on even my CASIO FX82MS shows the wrong answer. Hope it helps

    In scientific mode it is respecting the order of operations. In standard mode, it's just done left to right. You can tell because in standard mode it totals at every step, while in scientific it doesn't.

    As pepperdotNet said.

    Portrait is standard calculator
    14 * 3600 + 7 * 60 + 5 which does it like this:
    14 * 3600
    50400 + 7
    50407 * 60
    3024420 + 5
    3024425

    Scientific calculator (landscape) uses order of operations
    14 * 3600 + 7 * 60 + 5 = which is done like this:
    (14 * 3600) + (7 * 60) +5
    50400 + 420 + 5
    50820 + 5
    50825

    You can get to the point easier if you use an easier calculation:

    2+10
    Is 2 in landscape, because multiplies before the addition and
    Is 0 in portrait, because at the end it multiplies with 0.

    As said before. But maybe easier to see.
