Thus we're fine with the 12 digits of the HP35S or HP42S and don't need to FP each of the products before adding them. This could lead to problems when using a calculator that provides only 10 digits as the HP15C for example.(15743 * 99999 + 52261 * 99999) * 1e5 = 6 800 331 996 1e5 This is 10 digits. How do you conclude 11 are necessary? Edit: hmmm ok I have a clue. 0.1017980433 is actually 11 digits... So I had to enter 1017980433 * 1e10 and STO 0 to store the complete value (using PREFIX we see the 10 digits despite the starting 0). Unfortunately this doesn't work during calculations...
