Stefan: Sorry! I mis-typed the second line in my prior message. It should have been AccountingForm[N[(Sqrt[2]+Sqrt[3])^2002,1000]] Best, Harvey Harvey P.

Hello, I'm a newbie ... I have a rather huge number ( (Sqrt[2]+Sqrt[3])^2002 which is app. 3.85x10^996 ) and want to know the two ciphers that are (a) directly before and (b) directly after the decimal point. Is there a way to achieve this with Mathematica?
