Hi everybody,

It's me again... sorry :-)

I have the following problem.

Consider the function

10 * ATN(10)

which returns 14.7112767430373

Then I would take the sinus of it by

Sin(14.7112767430373) which results in .839676090553138

Now, since I don't like to take those intermediate steps I like to do

SIN(10 * ATN(10))

which gives me almost the same result: .839676090553114

Ok, it's minor but which one is now correct ?

The .839676090553114 or the .839676090553138 ? Then, does it even matter if it's

like 24 (ok, what do you call 15 numbers after the decimal ?)

Sorry for disturbing this peaceful day
