Simple example of what I do to get more precise answers to small real number calculations:

In[59]:= 41.347 / 7
Out[59]= 5.90671

-then I click on the out and hit 'space' (or whatever) to get a few more digits of the result in a new, would-be in:

5.906714285714286`

So, how can I control the displayed precision w/o this lame trick to get the three or four more digits I need for my IRL notebook?

Thanks in advance, Joel
