Bug #34967 $y=1.3+0.1>1.4
Submitted: 2005-10-24 12:53 UTC Modified: 2005-10-24 12:53 UTC

Status: Not a bug Package: Math related
PHP Version: 5.0.5 OS: windows xp home
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

The erro is: 1.3+0.1>1.4

Reproduce code:
if($y==1.4){$y-=1.4; echo "yes  y-1.4=$y";}
else{$y-=1.4; echo "no  y-1.4=$y";}

Expected result:
The result of the code should be:

yes y-1.4=0

Actual result:
Actual result is:

no y-1.4=2.2e-12

It happens only when $y=1.3+0.1;

If changing the code to $y=1.2+0.2; then the result is correct.

What is going on here?

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.

754 is read this:
