Hi there all,

Could someone please tell me how I could increase my precision for floating point arithematic?

My requirement is that I add a very small value of the order 10^-7 with a relatively big value, say 36.63 and then I want multiply it with 10^7. The problem Im facing using float nos alone is that when i sum up the numbers i get 36.63 itself and the former is not padded to the value 36.63.

My problem here make a significant difference in values because rigtht after the summing i multiply it with 10^7.

Could somebody tell me how I could go about this problem?

Thanks in advance
