i am having a problem \
i am preparing for a programming contest
and some questions are coming to me with an input of numbers each number has more than 10 digits in it.
i know i can store them in a string
but i need to compute them
and there is no way to store them in a variable
i need some help because i have faced two problems with this error.

PLEASE HELP ME...

There is the 'long' type; it can store numbers in the range [-2^63,2^63) and there
even is the BigInteger type.

You mean, like this?

identifier variable = 15 digit number?

recall,

datatype---------max.value(Can handle)------byte.used in register
byte ----------------------- +-127 -------------------------------- 1
short ---------------------- +-32768 ---------------------------- 2
int ------------------------- +-2147483647 -------------------- 4
long ------------------------ +- 9 x 10^18 ---------------------- 8

float ---------------------- +-3.4 x 10^38 ---------------------- 4
double -------------------- +-1.7 x 10^308 -------------------- 8

It is safe to use datatype "double" in computing large numbers...
for example, when you multiply 15 digits "999999999999999" by itself,
"double" is capable for handling the value "9.999999998 x 10^14"....

which is too small compare to its maximum value...

Hopefully it helps,

PM me if this reply have no sense to your question...

Better read this first; because your claim is incorrect:

What every computer scientist should know about floating point arithmetic.
