I have been updating the Full Precision Calculator.

* This is the old version (currently in use on the website): Full Precision Calculator

* And this is the new version I am working on: Full Precision Calculator Test Version

The new version should be somewhat faster than the old, but may have bugs. Would you all like to give it a work over and let me know if it misbehaves, and any suggestions you may have.

Hi MathsIsFun,

I tried to get 10 factorial and 100 factorial. The answers were satisfactory.

I tried to get 2^2520 and 2^232792560. The first worked well. The latter could not complete the operation.

(The result contains 70077544 digits!)

The calculator works completely well in my results! Outstanding web page!

Hi MIF;

So far it has performed accurately each time. I did notice a problem trying to cancel the square root of 51. Page seemed to hangup.

Hi MIF;

Played with it and the sqrt problem was not present anymore. Maybe it was just a glitch.

I have updated the main page with the new calculator ... it all seems fine to me too.

Hi MIF;

Thanks for the calculator.
