You can format the number displayed by the computer as the answer. For instance, if the answer is one-third, the computer will display that it computed ".333333333" as the answer. If you'd like to shorten that, you can use the Format field. Format strings like "2E" (without the quotes) will display three significant digits in scientific notation. Format strings like "2f" will display two digits after the decimal point. Format strings like "2s" will round a number to 2 significant digits. For a summary of numerical format statements, see the num tag item in the Output Tags section (Help).
