This is probably an ignorant question...but why when I attempt to calculate .001 to the 100th power on my TI-83 does it give me an answer of zero? Is the calculator assuming that the answer is so close to zero that it is negligible? If so, that's probably not the accuracy I'm looking for.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
