There he asked how to increase the precision available to his code. Python has two relevant numeric types, integers and floating-point values. The former numeric type is of infinite precision, whereas the floating-point is an IEEE "double" of 64 bits. Accumulate your result as an integer and infer the decimal position by some other means.
