The IEEE standard requires addition, multiplication, division and square root to be correctly rounded.

The 34S could suffer from a double rounding issue here since it is working to greater than 34 digit precision internally. However, the Intel library should get this correct.

Once you get into the transcendental functions, things aren't so nice.
