HP calculator Issue --- HP 12C

Hi All, I am using HP 12 C Platinum calculator Here is the issue: Calculation: 1+(0.0545*10/360)=> 1.0015 If I store 1.0015 by using Store 8 => store in register 8 1.0314/1.0015 => 1.0299 but 1.0314/Recall Register 8 => 1.0298 I know it is minute difference, why wouldn’t it give same answer, eventhough register has same value ? Any idea ? -Thanks,

1.0298 is the more precise answer
