Thank you very much, especially for the "Advanced Pocket Calculators" version. I read the HP journal version of this article many years ago, but it does not answer the question regarding the accuracy of the 13digit internal functions of the HP41, 67 or any other calculator. What the article essentially says is that 13 digits (HP91 and newer) allow (nearly) correct 10digit results, which had errors before when no guard digits were used. Or simply "13 digits give better results than 10 digits". Which nobody will deny. ;) Dieter
