Hi All,

Here's a really simple question

I have the output.

173845955435493737/50000 

I am trying to display this number as a real number showing decimals.
But I don't want to see the output as a fraction or scientific 
notation.

N[173845955435493737/50000,20]
3.4769191087098747400=D71012

The number should look something like  =933476919108709.87474=94


IntegerPart[173845955435493737/50000]
3476919108709
FractionalPart[173845955435493737/50000]//N
0.87474

Any help or advice gratefully received.

Best Regards - Lea Rebanks...
