unhappy behavior when using units in math operations

Using SWP6.09 on a Windows 7 OS machine, I typed 125N/7.25kg, appending the units directly to the numbers. When I executed the arithmetic, the units appeared as Joules,s that is, had multiplied N by kg and come up with J. However, when I enclosed used (7.25kg) in the denominator, the proper unts -- m/s2-- appeared. Apparently the program does not attach units to numbers (anymore?)

Well, they should be

Well, they should be equvilant with the same results.  I've entered this as a bug for our development team.  Thank you for reporting this problem.
