    Even calculator can't solve this......

    (8^2003+6^2003)/49=?

    Who can solve this?

    [tex]8^{2003} = 10^{2003*log_{10}8} = 10^{1808.88924} = 7.75 * 10^{1808}[/tex]

    [tex]6^{2003} = 10^{2003*log_{10}6} = 10^{1558.63695} = 4.335 * 10^{1558}[/tex]

    The second can be neglected in comparison to the first giving

    [tex](8^{2003}+6^{2003})/49 = (about)~ 1.5816 * 10^{1807} [/tex]

    Also, if you wrote out the full number (in decimal expansion) in all its gory detail, the digits after the decimal point would be .04081632653... for whatever that's worth.

    Well, I didn't do the arithmetic, but the answer is

    divided by 7, which can be shortened to approximately

    1.5814223227342232267895223637314066 * 10^1807

    Mathematica did it, not me :redface: Excuse the strange spacing too...it's late and I feel no urge to write simple latex.
