Re: help pleaseHi anky16; Welcome to the forum! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20110215 01:50:59

Re: help pleaseDecimal numbers such as 3.762 are used in situations which call for more precision than whole numbers provide. As with whole numbers, a digit in a decimal number has a value which depends on the place of the digit. The places to the left of the decimal point are ones, tens, hundreds, and so on, just as with whole numbers. #7 20110420 23:03:46
Re: help pleaseHi;
That is not correct. 3.762 is not more precise than the whole number 3. The whole number or integer is exact and implies no error. 3.762 is more precise than the decimal 3.
