The worst thing that can happen is that your computer might crash if it is really slow, but most modern computers can do huge exponents. :) My political compass: Economic Left/Right: 1.00 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 2.82 1 square right of Nelson Mandela, 2 squares down from Francois Hollande

9/8/2014 1:32:28 PM Posted: 2 years ago A computer using 64bits in the IEEE standard format cannot represent 10^394. Wikipedia says:
"The 11 bit width of the exponent allows the representation of numbers with a decimal exponent between 10^308 and 10^308, with full 1517 decimal digits precision. By compromising precision, subnormal representation allows values smaller than 10^323." However, a program using it's own format for keeping track of all the digits can be written to solve the math problem posed. For example, a computer has computed the first 5 trillion digits of pi. The limit is the amount of computer time.

Even Wolframalpha crashes from trying to solve Jedi's full equation. How can it be that a computer can compute pi to five trillion digits, but be unable to keep track of a mere 394 digits? Nah, it's not a problem. Computers can always fail if they are not programmed correctly, but this problem is easy to program.
