The following code will print 'false'. float f = 1.0F/3.0F; System.out.println( (f * 3.0F) == 1.0F ); Options : 1) True 2) False Answer : false.. I feel it should be true because when 1 is divided by 3 it gives 0.33333....i.e 0.334 and when we multiply 0.334 by 3.000 we get 1.002....i.e 1 Hence it should be true.. Any Comments??? Sonir
hi, but can we be sure of the answer "false"? because it's precision based and if we can't be sure of how much it would be exactly due to precision then we can't say "true" or "false". how can we be sure? regards maulin.
