The return value of expression /(4.1-0.1 == 4.0)/ should be true, but infact false!!

Test script:
		echo(4.1-0.1 == 4.0);
		echo(4.1-0.1 == 4);
		echo((4.1-0.1) == 4.0);
		echo((4.1-0.1) == 4);

Expected result:

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:
