You didn't wtite it like that before!Here's the new output:

```

An extra character got added!

This is correct.

```
test[l_,dig_]:=Module[{a},a=IdentityMatrix[Length[l]];
a=Append[a,10^dig*N[l,dig]];
a=Transpose[a];
a=Rationalize[a,10^-dig];
a=LatticeReduce[a];
Take[a,All,{1,Length[l]}]];
```

What do you notice about post 203 and 205?

Hi bobbym

Why are you multiplying dig by 10^dig?

A PSLQ works to some digit precision. You fit a constant that you have determined experimentally to some number of decimal places. That is an attempt to work to the precision of the constant that is being fit.

Multiplying by that integerizes the vector that you are using. After all the PSLQ is a rational fit for a constant!

But what good would the number 25*10^25 possibly do to you?

Each constant in the vector is turned into an integer part and a fractional part.

But dig is already an integer.

I understand that. So there is no reason to multiply dig by 10^dig, only the vector.

Wait, the second parameter for the function N[] is to how many digits we round down?
