Depends on accuracy you use. You can always say something like 1.95839831231*10^13. Normally you'd see something like 1.958*10^13. You loose some precision and some significant figures. Importance depends on the situations. If you are doing calculations it's bad. If you are reporting they only need to know roughly, so you'd say something like 1.96 Trillion Note that this isn't the actual debt just some random number
