unexpected results:

120 volt * 20 ampere = 2400 watt

2400watt /120 volt = 20 ampere⁻¹ meter⁴ kilogram² second⁻⁶

    I think this is not a bug.

    You need to put “120 volt” in parentheses after the “/” . Like so:

    2400 watt / (120 volt) = 20 ampere

    This is because between every value and unit there is a multiplication happening.
    So if you type “2400watt /120 volt” that would translate to 2400*watt/120 * volt.
    The devision happens before the multiplication:
    2400watt/120 = 20 watt ; 20 watt * volt =20 ampere⁻¹ meter⁴ kilogram² second⁻⁶

    This is also written in the documentation:
