One is i guess followed by the british dictionary...and thereby used differently...

Also one of them is particularly used for computer codes etc, while the other is used in general english and in terms of maths...

Hope i might have helped...!! ^_^

Center and centre, it's like shop and shoppe, they are both right, just two different spellings for the same word.
