So, I've been sitting here on hold with BofA for what must seem like hours, and I'm gazing at my HP calculator poster, looking at the various models. Very pretty. ;-)
As I glance at the HP-10bii model ("R2D2"), I see the value of Pi in the display. 3.1415926545.
Wait. 545? I always knew it as 3.1415926535.
My HP-97 says 3.141592654 (using DISP), so, okay, it rounded up.
My HP-30b says 3.14159265359 (gotta love the extra digit).
I don't have an HP-10bii handy, but that value in the display, on the poster, appears to be wrong. Was it just typed in or actually displayed wrong on that unit?
Inquiring (bored) minds want to know.
