Re: Not getting numeric answer to simple division


Hi Paul:

I am a little bit unsure of what is going on, but I will start by
suggesting that you use the numeric operator N.

Consider the fraction 3/7. There are two forms for the numeric
operator.

Prefix N[] displaying 50 digits:
N[3/7,50]

Postfix //N:
3/7//N

Good luck
Dan
