IEEE standard 754 floating point is the most common representation used for floating point numbers, and many computer arithmetic algorithms are developed for basic operations on this standard. In this study, new computer algorithms are proposed to increase the precision range and to solve some problems that are available while using these algorithms. However, these algorithms provide an optional range of required accuracy (Mega-Digit precision) to meet new computer's applications.
