Hi,

I am trying to do matrix operation in mathematica and as part of my assignment I need to make the output to 4 decimal places.

For example in one line of my code I had:

In[25]:= r1 = r1 / 1.985

Out[25]= {1., -0.684131, 1.06448, -2.80101}

I need to find a way where I can set the precision after the decimal to 4 decimal places and can't seem to find anything.

The default is a believe 16 decimal places. Anyone knows how I can make Mathematica do just 4?

Thanks.

A copy of my workout is attached with this post.
