Broken: (fixed) Google's calculator

(Update: This is now fixed.)

Google's calculator - a great feature that I use a lot - appears to be broken at the moment. From the Google Help page...

To use Google's built-in calculator function, simply enter the calculation you'd like done into the search box and hit the Enter key or click on the Google Search button.

Clicking to use their own example, 5+2*2, yields a page of crazyquilt results.


I found no problems with the calculation. Not broken.

Appears to be fixed already! :)

If you remember the order that you do mathematical operations, multiplication comes before addition. Ergo, there's nothing broken here.

No, yesterday, it wasn't working at all, as I discovered when I tried to investigate a purchase and wanted to figure out the value of 55 GBP in CAD...had to resort to ANOTHER WEB SITE to figure it out.
