OK.  That 'e' has very little to do with the number 2.71828......

It is simply a calculator abbreviation for 'ten to the power of' ie

This is the way a calculator with a limited display size shows standard index form.  As the full number has 101 digits it saves a lot of space.

its   1.197857e+100

thanx, i was going through for an answer in calculator and i got the result with this sign so wanted to know what does it really mean.

Sorry, if it's a bit late to chip in here but could this just be standard index form?

niharika_kumar: what does your calculator show when you evaluate 70!  (that's factorial 70) ?

How did you do it?

2013-11-21 16:07:14

For which did you do?

No one else is using them so it is difficult to help you. There will always be problems in translation. Also, M has more documentation and forums than all of those put together! M also knows more math.

I am not trying to convince you, when you make up your own mind then it will happen.

which version?

Why is Maxima, MATLAB, SciLab, GNU Octave, etc not enough for the math I will do?

2013-11-17 01:36:06

Mine is only about 1.12 GB.

It is double the size you told

2013-11-17 01:23:44

Yes, it is possible but I do not know anything about the installation of it.

I think I should request that guy who downloaded the Precise Pangolin for me to download this. Maybe, he should like it because he is a Computer Science student.

Is it possible to run Mathematica on Linux?

2013-11-17 01:17:13

I download it once and watch it many times. I already have tons of them.

2013-11-17 01:14:23

How can that be true? Don't you watch a lot of youtube?

2013-11-17 01:12:55

Probably less than 100MB per day, alot less. When I am downloading big files then it is naturally more.
