RE: 50 digits precision handheld calculator is it achievable or not?
Thanks to everyone's contribution to this thread. Now I know that it is possible with far more than what I expected .
I tried the "Pi" "quickarch" program for 50 digits and got 7510 as the last trailing digits. (display set to mini fonts) I had no idea how to get the numbers to wrap around on the HP50g display so I had to go to TOOLS then VIEW and scroll through all the numbers. It took only a few seconds with the "longfloat" library loaded, WOW! I tried for 1000 digits with the display set to mini fonts and it ran for 4 minutes before I decided to cancel the program. I was getting impatient. Regards, JeanMarc
