If I am performing simple arithmetic on numbers that extend 12 decimal places i.g;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

12.1234567891011 +11.1234567891011 and this calculation occurs 1000+ times, will calculation i.g;

12.123+11.123 speed up computation time if so how much and how do you arrive at this?
