Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@peachpi thanks for refreshing my memory on that... I saw the problem with 100000000 which is 10 to a positive exponent until I saw that fraction 1/ that number... and then while reading your comment, it just occurred to me that 1/ that number is related to (that number)^{exponent}
