Each answer should contain first an answer and second a mathematical operation I can enter into my basic computer calculator. For example: Answer: 1876 Operation: +656 At resolution I will perform all the operations on my calculator in order from highest bet to smallest bet. Then I will look for the closest *unique* answer to the final result and award that the victory. Jun 13, 2:15pm: If I need to perform another operation and the calculator is currently errored out, I will first hit CE before hitting the next operation so that the game can continue. Jun 14, 3:31pm: By Basic I mean the standard calculator on Windows. NOT the Scientific mode. If you enter an invalid operation for the standard calculator, it will be skipped.
Answer: Invalid Input Operation: Copy paste the text 'pi' into the calculator

I believe this is a valid operation for the standard Windows calculator as you can copy paste other things (eg. copy pasting '3+5=' gives the answer 8).

@MartinRandall Given that the description specifies the standard Windows calculator, that might be a tricky operation if SneakySly is not on a laptop or something.

Log: Divide By Zero -> Syntax Error +10000 -> 10000 "times by 0" -> 0 Off -> Invalid Operation, so SKIPPED -> 0 +2 -> 2 Copy paste the text 'pi' into the calculator -> Possible to do on my Win Invalid Input turn calculator upside down -> SKIPPED -> Invalid Input exponential 0 -> Not valid operation, so SKIPPED -> Invalid Input Invalid Input is the winner.

Does the calculator accept 0^0?

@Angela The Standard Windows calculator cannot do exponents. That requires scientific mode.

"Then I will look for the closest *unique* answer to the final result and award that the victory." Does this mean someone could, right before closing, bet on one answer and then create duplicates for all the other answers?
