You can get the numerical approximation of your last output with N[%] but this will give you a number of decimal places that is machine dependent. You can get *at least* x places using N[%, x]. Usually, if x is less than the normal machine precision, you will get the (greater) machine precision -- Cheers Mark R Diamond -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mark R Diamond Vision Research Laboratory Department of Psychology The University of Western Australia SPAM AVIODING EMAIL: ... at psy dot edu dot au, address to markd Disclaimers: The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and are not intended to reflect on any official positon held by The University of Western Australia generally, the Department of Psychology specifically, or any other individual Tim 9-23 wrote in message <9j8nqi$5qf$1 at smc.vnet.net>... >How do I just get the approx. of this, say 5 decimal places? >Mathematica gives an exact answer which is in terms of multiple >fractions, roots, and complex numbers. > >According to my TI-85, it is approx. 0.7273 > >My email address is anti-spammed.
