I was trying to solve a problem which stated:
Calculate the first 10 digit prime found in consecutive digits of e.
I was able to solve the problem but I did it by using some 10k digits of e available online. So I tried to write a program which calculates digits of e. The problem is that it simply gives the incorrect answer.
The code and the formula I used are:
import math e=0 x=int(input()) #larger this number, more will be the digits of e for i in range(x): e+=(1/(math.factorial(i))) print(e)
When the user inputs 10, the digits returned are 2.7182815255731922 which is not correct.
Can someone explain why is my code buddy?
