standard floating point arithmetic in Mathematica?
Posted:
Mar 27, 2014 5:00 AM


I would like to illustrate some limitations with floating point calculations. Can I force Mathematica to do floating point computations at a standard float size and the display the full results (as the same size float)?
E.g., if I enter 0.1+0.2 I would like to see 0.30000000000000004
Thanks, Alan Isaac
