Nope, verify by yourself, the pattern end clearly with 14, and it has no correlation with the kind of calculator you use.
He is telling me that I should have better result with a double precision calculator than with a single precision one. He will never suppose think that I've tryied yet, with Simple, Double and infinite precisions.

Good stuff. This confirms what I always suspected -- the Bible was written by satanists!

I was just wondering though, why exactly do you make that assertion??? Is Mathematics and Satanism go together in your opinion???
Or is it something else???

Nice, but don't forget that you can't get finished results with unfinished expressions.
Also, don't forget that you chip (x86 architecture) have many bugs, and make many errors in calculation.

OP-ED: The queen of sciences
Daily Times
Munir Attaulla
Increasingly, beauty -- and delight -- is sought in the pure manipulation of the tools of the trade, be they colours, words, or the musical scale. Mathematicians have always known this form of intellectual pleasure.
Most people find mathematics a forbiddingly dry and boring subject. I suspect that that is because, to quote Russell’s famous epigram, "mathematics is a subject where we never know what we are talking about or, whether what we are talking about is true". That flippant remark, nevertheless, aptly sums up what a mathematician does.
Mathematics is the finest method we know for generalised and abstract thinking and is, without doubt, the supreme construct of the human mind. Without it, nothing of any significance would have been achievable in any of the sciences. Those school years spent in tedious struggle with decimal fractions, square roots, and learning mysterious formulae by rote, are necessary because nothing worthwhile is ever achieved by anyone without first painstakingly mastering the tools of his trade. For the mathematician, the tools are numbers and the great advance which made this possible was the decimal system of numbering and its modern Arabic notation.
‘Art for art’s sake’ is a relatively modern concept which inspires much of abstract art, free verse poetry, and even atonal music. The emphasis is on form rather than content. Increasingly, beauty - and delight - is sought in the pure manipulation of the tools of the trade, be they colours, words, or the musical scale. Mathematicians have always known this form of intellectual pleasure. Can you see anything beautiful about an apparently ordinary number such as 142857? No? Well, if you multiply it successively by 2,3,4,5,and 6 you get the following numbers: 285714, 428571, 571428, 714285, and 857142.
Notice anything odd about these numbers? Amazingly, they are all made up of the same digits as the original number. What is even more interesting, all the digits maintain their relative order vis-a vis the other digits. But what happens when you multiply the number by seven? Surprise! You get 999999! Intriguing? Certainly. Beautiful? I think so. It is as if Shane Warne, the magician, lulls you with five perfect leg-spinners before foxing you with a googly.
An endless source of delight is the mysterious and subtle ways the realities of Nature are mirrored in mathematics. We humans instinctively seem to find certain proportions pleasing to the eye. Coffee tables of roughly eight by five look good. The pyramids of Giza and the Parthenon exhibit a similar base to height ratio. The Greeks called this ‘the golden ratio’ (1.618 or 0.618 to be exact, depending on which dimension is being compared to which). Even artists pay homage to this mysterious number when they focus the attention of the eye not on the centre of the canvas but to one side. Your credit card and Mona Lisa’s face form a ‘golden rectangle’.
Consider next the series of numbers 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55... called the Fibonacci series, where each number is the sum of the previous two numbers. As uninteresting a set of numbers as you could ask for, till you notice that the further down the series you go, the closer two adjoining numbers approximate to the golden ratio. Curious. In the last hundred years Naturalists have unearthed the deep interconnections between cell growth, Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio. The number of petals on most flowers are Fibonacci numbers (three on lilies, 34 on sunflowers, 13 on marigolds, 34, 55, or 89 on daisies etc.); If you count the clockwise and anti-clockwise spiral patterns on a pinecone or sunflower seed packing, you will find them to be two adjoining Fibonacci numbers; leaves around a stem and the spiral shell of a snail share a common growth pattern (a factor of 1.618 per whole turn) etc. etc.
From there it took some simple mathematics to show that cell growth based on the golden ratio was the optimal way of packing seeds on a flower bud, ensuring maximum sunlight for each leaf on a stem and collecting the most rainwater for the plant! If such deep interconnections fail to move you it is time for your siesta and time for me to say goodbye.

I didn't insulted you, i just said that you feel scientifically superior, and it's an egoist approach, and not really scientific.
You show me demonstrations that you have learnt from you're teachers,
but you never take the time to, at least, check my results.
You have learn many things mechanically, and you think you're knowledge is big, but you don't know nothing. You're like a geographer who have never moved from his deck and think he claim to knowing the world.
But, be scientific, experiment, verify once and twice, and you will see, you will fall on the same results than me...
I was the first surprised by these results, but think about it : 142857 is not a common number, it's the cycle number, and pi is the circum ratio. These numbers are connected, that's logical.

I for one agree with Amantine. I wish I was as smart as Amantine. Maybe if you stop insulting people who are more intelligent than you and listen to what they say maybe you will understand what they have to say."You know nothing" What a joke.
"The knowledge of man is as the waters, some descending from above, and some springing from beneath; the one informed by the light of nature... the other inspired by divine revelation." - Francis Bacon, 1605
