If you were referring to the calculated number POINTS, better double-check.

With EXPMIN=332192831, END = 66, START = 65, and EXP = 332,192,831:

POINTS = ((2^66 - 2^65)/2^65)*(332192831/332192831) = (2^65/2^65)*(1/1) = 1

With EXP = 3,321,928,319:

POINTS = ((2^66 - 2^65)/2^65)*(332192831/3321928319) = 0.099999999729073022180404248512022 = ~ 0.1
