Floating point values have a limited precision. Hence a value might 
not have the same string representation after any processing. That also
includes writing a floating point value in your script and directly 
printing it without any mathematical operations.
Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The two numbers 1150000000002401 and 1.1500000000024E+15 are the exact same number on your machine.
