I'm calculating some geometric means of different pairs of numbers. The one I've just done gives a readout on the calculator screen of:
Does the e-4 bit on the end of the number basically mean that the number is far too long to fit on the screen so there is an error (e), and the -4 bit indicates that to get the real answer (which I am expecting to be very small) I have to move the decimal point 4 places to the left?
So it would end up as 0.000328
(I am wanting it to 6 decimal places)
Have I understood things correctly?
By the way, how do you give other users stars for helpfulness? Wanted to earlier today and didn't seem to have the function available...
