For machine-precision numbers, Precision@xD returns the symbol MachinePrecision whose numerical value is $MachinePrecision. For the Macintosh and 26 Chapter 2 Interactive Use of Mathematica Windows computer systems, $MachinePrecision equals 53 log10 2, which is approximately 16. For arbitrary-precision numbers, Precision returns numbers that are greater than $MachinePrecision. 45497 In[3]:= Precision@%D Out[3]= MachinePrecision By default, Mathematica prints only six digits for the result. 31982 N@exprD evaluates expr numerically to give a machine-precision result: In[6]:= Precision@%D Out[6]= MachinePrecision The function N also allows us to do arbitrary-precision calculations.
