Compare to the version on my 48 using a direct summation of terms and repeated COMB calls returning 6.4196298769E6. That's an error of 6.71E7%, which isn't a terrible sacrifice for having the program finish inside of a lunar cycle (or possibly solar orbit) now. The HP41 works with 10 digits, the HP48 with 12. For the former 1/6 equals 0,166 666 666 7, for the latter it's 0,166 666 666 667. This means:
