Hi all.
My solution to assignment 1.6 works, but I received the comment
"A double does not have the accuracy I require."
with regard to the variable I used to hold total number of grains. I believe of all the basic types, the double is the most accurate. Can anyone point me in the direction of a more accurate type? Thanks in advance.

Check the assignment again. At the bottom it says "To complete this assignment, you will need to find a class in the Java standard library that you have not used yet. The search for this class is the real meat of this assignment!"
