Question : What happens when you have this in you code
double x; x = 24.0/0;
Answer : Compiles and runs.
Floating point numbers don�t produce a divide-by-zero ArithmeticException. They will give a result which is a Not a Number value.

Floating point numbers don�t produce a divide-by-zero ArithmeticException. They will give a result which is Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY.
Also notice that 24.0%0 gives NaN.
