"What is the result of 34343+645453*432432432-9433+
The first thing that came to my mind was my maths sir in school who taught us the BODMAS rule.
Brackets Of Division Multiplication Addition Substraction, the flow to be followed while doing a solution. But then I saw that huge numbers are involved...
7 digit number * 8 digit number will give me 14 or 15 digit number.
We normally use calculators that use 10 digit numbers, beyond that it gives an error.
Then I thought of doing it in C language, but upon learning I got that we use a 32-bit processor, and in C language, even a long int datatype can store a number as large as 2^32 which is equal to 4294967296(10 Digits). (As long int stores from 0(zero), so the maximum number would be 4294967295)
Then I thought, hmm. Let try out in Windows Calculator first...And Voila...
The answer is: 528010288207615 (15 Digits)
The reason being Windows Calculator uses 128-bit floating point precision that allows it work with numbers as long as 32 digits..
Looks like same is the case with Excel Sheet.. :)
So only thing to note is that, I correctly guessed that he was about to ask me something weird only by a sentence of his, "here goes." He was not face-to-face with me and even if he was I am not a good face reader neither a good observer of body language.
I need not research the answer to this question as I know the answer and that is, NO.
I didnt know that he was going to ask me, "Do you know what I am going to ask you?" :P
