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.
