Effect Summary and the Logworth with p-value of 0????

Hi can someone help me?

 

I am running logistic regression with two x variables below shows my effect summary with the logworth. Now I understand the logworth basically takes the -log(p-value) for each x variable and that works for the p-value 0.00219. What i am confused about is the logworth of for the p-value 0.0000, how is it getting 56.125? Moreover in other regression models I've run into different logworths for p-value  of 0. Can someone please explain this to me so I can move on with my life?jMOP.PNG

 

Thank you!!!

try double clicking on the p-value and change the format to show more decimal places to see what the actual p-value is.

Are you sure you used -Log10?

Let's review: Log10 (7.5e-57) = Log10 (7.5) + Log10 (e-57) = Log10 (7.5) - 57 = 0.875 - 57 = -56.125

@txnelson well thank you cause i didn't realize I could do that. With that being said the value is 7.5e-57 but when I take the -log of that it gives me 49.8784920133. So I'm closer but still not spot on.
