Hello all, I am wonderin on how to change the mathematica default printing precision, so I don't have to type on any defined constant the required precision, like " `30 " in: In:= a=2.3`30; b=2.1`30; In:= a*b Out= 4.83000000000000000000000000000 I would like to be able to do: a=2.3; b=2.1; and obtain a*b = 4.83000000000000000000000000000 Regards, Sergio PS. Apparently the internal variable $Pre could be set to do that, but the respective help page [ http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/$Pre.html ] is not clear about how to do that.
