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

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

Who can solve this?

$$8^{2003} = 10^{2003*log_{10}8} = 10^{1808.88924} = 7.75 * 10^{1808}$$

$$6^{2003} = 10^{2003*log_{10}6} = 10^{1558.63695} = 4.335 * 10^{1558}$$

The second can be neglected in comparison to the first giving

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

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 Excuse the strange spacing too...it's late and I feel no urge to write simple latex.
