Do computers have a sense of difficulty while making calculations?

Can they always make a calculation at the same rate? Like 1 + 1 and some difficult one like ((√50)²)³ • 76.82. We as humans will take more time on questions that are more difficult. Do the computers have that too? Kind of a silly question to ask

    Computers have no feelings. They simply follow a map. If the route is blocked or doesn't work they go to error report and quit. Each step takes the same amount of time. Complex issues take more time because there are more steps.

    Yes. Due to the 'P verses NP' problem. Linear time-computation drops to NP-Intermediate, gliching their momentum.

    400 x 30% =120 because you multiply 4x3 and move the decimal places. That's a human calculation. The computer has to go from the beginning of every calculation to the end as a routine- no shortcuts unless they are programmed. That's one of the differences between humans and computers.

    Any addition or subtraction is the same. Next is multiplication, then division. Square roots and logarithms are a complicated algorithm (program).

    So far, computer could not think like human to find different ways to solve difficulty calculation, because it depends on how smart the software is designed by a group of humen. Therefore, computer has a limitation to do complex calculation in a very wide field. At least for now, it only good to concentrate calculation on a certain topic due to the software is imperfect.

    No sense of difficulty or sense of anything for that matter. Its just adding and storing in the long run.

    No, every problem will always be at the same rate. The more difficult ones take longer to process but if you enter the same exact input more than once it will take the same exact time as it did the first time as long as nothing else is occupying the memory

    Try dividing a number by zero.
