    I didn't insert the e-6, just the rest of the number.
    Which is what I did in my initial post

    Yes, too many numbers. I tried with 3 more numbers and got invalid input.
    As a test I removed the last 3 numbers before the "e" and it worked...

    So yeah, it appears there are too many numbers in the equation.

    This reminds me of the old joke....
    I prefer the version I heard at Uni while doing an engineering degree.

    It starts with a mathematician and an engineer at a disco who spot a couple of girls the other side of the dance floor. It's the engineer who proposes a novel way of crossing to ask them to dance.... go half way, then half the remaining distance, repeat until we get over there. The mathematician says "but we'll never reach them" to which the engineer replies "well... close enough for all practical purposes."

    As I said, I sanitised the post - lol.
