Abstract

In general we can rely upon twice the number of places of decimals as the decimal place of the last cipher in the last difference, which in this case is 3. The total value of A is too great as all values found this way must be, but the number above with no more figures may even be too small; as a rule, if we stop short according the rule stated, we get a value too small. In reality the value is correct up to the first place, which makes it too great.
