• it will solve .6 divided by 365 – Brian Proskin Apr 5 at 16:49
• It's written in scientific notation. Specifically, $1.643835616 \times 10^{-4} = 0.0001643835616$. – angryavian Apr 5 at 16:49
• it's not set up to answer in that type of notation so why is it reverting to a notation that is useless when doing financial computations in function form – Brian Proskin Apr 5 at 16:54
• i can add the extra zero because it's obvious what it's doing but on my upcoming exam this will be a pain – Brian Proskin Apr 5 at 16:56

So 1.643835616E -4 means $$1.643835616\cdot 10^{-4}=1.643835616\cdot0.0001$$ which is exactly the answer you say you expected.
