I have an apache+php+mysql server. If i store in one field this value : 55.76 and after that reapitly decreasing this value to zero, after the las decrease i never can make the value to be zero.

I over verified my script it works in this way with any value like 12.28 even when using 55.76005 but never for 55.76

Reproduce code:
Example :

55.76 - 10 = 44.76

44.76 - 33 = 11.76

11.76 - 11.76 = 1.17... * E-15

Expected result:
of course that expected result should be zero

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:
