Problem 713. Find the maximum number of decimal places in a set of numbers

Given a vector or matrix of values, calculate the maximum number of decimal places within the input. Trailing zeros do not count as significant. No significant digits will result in an answer of 0.

For example:

x = [0.01 0.888 1.0 40.151 39.1244];
y = 4;

The maximum number of significant decimal places from the input is 4 (39.1244).
