Default for floating point numbers is double so to put data into a float u have to explicitly tell compiler this.
However its not needed it the value you're putting in is same size or smaller than float.

myFloat1 explicitly indicated as a float, without it there is a compile error as double 190.245, the default without the f suffix, wont fit into float
