Next, we set a fixed precision for r to be considered from now on up to 3 decimal places only. 001) we create in Python an object to be viewed as a Decimal class. g. 001. This is exactly what we want to avoid! ) we implement a “Decimal” division. 001. specifying the precision of r to 3 decimal places. When it comes to derivation of s= 10000000 X r = r + r + ... + r i=1 we do not limit ourselves to the same precision. With decimal module we can obtain results precisely accurate up to the desired precision.
