Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I am trying to find a Billion digit calculator so I can do very complex calculations including this number: 24/c^2. c^2 is the speed of light. The answer goes over 1 million digits, so I need a more powerfull calculator to be more acurate.
You should try to read a bit about significant digits. In scientific and technical calculations only a few digits have any meaning and results are rounded. Get a scientific calculator that displays 10 or more digits and that will be more than enough for your very complex calculations.
You can use the calculator on your computer. Look under the Accessories submenu in All programs.

I am only looking for a plausible cause of the error, because I do not believe your calculator can make such a mistake. I think you accidentally activated the Exponential display format and did not pay attention to the small, raised -03 that came at the end of the number displayed. It is a common mistake for those not very familiar with Scientific or exponential notation.
Let us try to reset your calculator to the normal (floating point) format.
Press the [MODE] key a number of times until you reach a screen that has FIX, SCI, NORM and under each one a number (FIX 1, SCI 2), Norm 3). To have the number of decimal place you gave in your result (4 decimal digits), you press 1 to select Fix then 4.
Be aware that scientific calculators usually stop displaying results in floating point format ( 0.0000045 ) if the number is smaller then 0.001. So basically, 0.00099 will be displayed as 9.90-04, -04 being raised above the level, and in smaller size.
Hope it helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much, its working now:) I thought I was going to have to buy a new calculator!"
I took statistics last semester and I don't really remember how, but after you enter your data, you press SHIFT, then STAT (on the 1 key), then I think it's under 5 (VAR), and maybe Xon-1? Eh, funny how long you remember this stuff for....
