Hi, I am chasing for a lot of digits and therefore using mathematica. I am not an expert in it and to be honest I started yesterday to work with it. In the beginning of my program I set Ndigits to 100 and I use N function to set the variables to this precision.But there is one line in my code in which I lose almost all of the digits. Here is it t=Max[Cases[t./Solve[(p[[1]]+t*v[[1]])4+(p[[2]]+t*v[[2]])4==1,t],_?Positive]];. When I checked the v1 before this line I have 100 digits but using the result of this line there are only some digits which mathematica shows to me. What can I do? Thanks for your help and good night, Martin
