Title: Dividing two odd numbers gives an answer that's one too much
        Test Case: Simple division
        Setup steps: Start version 1.0 of calculator
        Repro steps:Try dividing two odd numbers such as 1/1,3/3,and 5/5
        Excepted Results:Correct answer for all calculations--1/1=1,3/3=1?..
        Actual Results: For two odd numbers, the answer is one too high---   1/1=2,3/3=10,5/5=11, and so on.

Defect Title: Dividing two odd numbers gives Wrong answer

Defect Description: dividing two odd numbers such as 1/1,3/3,and 5/5 gives wrong Result.

when we tries to Devide a ODD number with itself it gives Result as square of the Number + 1.

Example for 5: 5/5= Result: 5*5+1= 26

Similarly For 3: 3/3 = Result: 3*3+1= 10

and So on...

Excepted Results:Correct answer for all calculations--1/1=1,3/3=1, 5/5=1 and So on

The scenario goes like following:

For Odd numbers

The division produces a result which is equal to the square of numerator or denominator +1 like 1/1=2 goes like sqr(1)+1 which will give answer 2

For Even numbers:

The division will always give result as 1

i hope this will answer this query

Bug Desc would be :Results are not accurate for division of same number of numerator & denominator of odd numbers.Expected: (Odd no./same no.)=1.Actual result different from expected result.Take a print screen /snapshot & post the issue.

Hi Srinivasulu.Chittoor, Thanks for the details.However, I am a suggesttion. In the test cases, you can combine test case 2 & 3 to one test case which will finish with the opening of the Calculator from the start menu.This kind of test case writting makes the test case document compact and precise.Thanks, Rubul Sarma

The output will be always one when a number is divided by itself.
It is giving correct output when the no is even i.e when the no is divisible by 2.
But when the no is odd it is squaring the no and increasing it by 1.Ex--3*3+1=10

(x/x) operation
where x = Positive odd integer
uses the formula ((x*x)+1) instead of integer division.
The (x/x) operation works fine for even numbers.
