-Numbers in different bases can be entered by preceeding the value with a ''#''​ and a trailing letter to indicate the base (''​b''​ = binary, ''​o''​ = octal, ''​d''​ = decimal, ''​h''​ = hex, note that the trailing letter is case insensitive). ​ Arithmetic can be done on numbers in different bases with the result displayed as the base of the first argument. ​ Only exact numbers in the range $-2^{63}$ to $2^{63}-1$ can be expressed in multiple bases. ​ Outside this range (or approximate numbers) ​will be switched to decimal.+Numbers in different bases can be entered by preceeding the value with a ''#''​ and a trailing letter to indicate the base (''​b''​ = binary, ''​o''​ = octal, ''​d''​ = decimal, ''​h''​ = hex, note that the trailing letter is case insensitive). ​ Arithmetic can be done on numbers in different bases with the result displayed as the base of the first argument. ​ Only exact numbers in the range $-2^{63}$ to $2^{63}-1$ can be expressed in multiple bases. ​ Outside this range will be switched to decimal.
