Just a radix 2 problem
Authored by: WillyT on Oct 09, '02 11:01:48PM

My old TI99/4A was the ONLY computer I ever had that didn't have this problem. It used 7 digit radix 100 for all math in Basic. So all normal math was wysiwyg. Of course it still had the 1/3 problem? But so did I if I worked it out on paper.

I will try to find the old PRECSN program by Mr Nash published in a 1981 "Interface Age". It will discover just what math system you are using.
