Stefan:
	Here's one way:
AccountingForm[(Sqrt[2]+Sqrt[3])^2002,1000]]
	The two digits to the left of the decimal point are 10; the two to
the right of the decimal point are 00.
	Best,
	Harvey

Subject: [mg33695] [mg33673] [Q]: huge number, ciphers after decimal point?

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?

Thanks,
Stefan.
