Can you tell a calculator to spit out a given digit in a number? For example, 10^B / (10 ^(2B) - 10^B -1) for B=2 what is the 20th digit behind the decimal. Thanks
Well, due to TI's precision with numbers, the precision of numbers that aren't integers only go up to 14 digits.

For your advice, I'd put each of the digits in a list element (1 total list) using a lot of math commands, then call whatever list element that has the digit.

Thanks for the advice, I will definitely take this into account.
If you look at the result of the calculation up to the precision that the calculator displays, you should notice a repeating pattern. Extrapolate from this to figure out the digit in the 20th decimal place.
I'll do you one better:

Code:
:N₁₀^(S-2-int(log(N
:int(₁₀^(L)(Ans-int(Ans

That will pull out L digits of a positive N starting from position S. The location of the decimal point is disregarded.
