If you look at the screen you will notice that it is limited. It can only display a certain number of symbols (numbers, letters, signs). Furthermore, its memory capacity is also limited. Being just a calculator, it can only give you approximate values. However, even if it can display 10 decimal digits only, it is performing calculations with 12 to 15 digits. The precision it is giving is more than your problem has in the first place. How precise are the numbers you are entering? In science one talks about significant digits. Digits that really mean something.
What, pray tell, do you need the others (how many) for? Are you worried about losing precision? At this level of precision, you can enter any number of arbitrary digits you want after the result calculated. It will not make the slightest bit of a difference (1 in 10 billion).
If you have a problem with too many zeros before the actual significant digits, use the scientific display format or the engineering display format. But I do not think it is the problem, because the calculator automatically reverts to scientific notation if the numbers are too small ot too large.
Hope it helps.
