Re: Base 10 to Base 2 conversion error ?

Well, there are only 100^2 cases, so it's fairly easy to write a 
mathematica notebook that will mechanically test all cases.  It may take 
all night to run, but you won't need to catch a mathematician.

Is it really necessary to be accurate to the penny?  Why isn't one part 
in a billion accurate enough?
