This question has always stumped me since using a simple basic calculator over 20 years ago. I'm using the basic calculator on windows or it can be any for that matter.
I input the following into the calculator: 1 / 15000
The output is this: 6.666666666666667e-5
- What is this number format called?
- Why is there an e-5 at the end?
- Why 6.66666?
- And last of all, how do I convert this back to regular decimal places from that output: .00006
