This happens because all the languages are using the same numerical representation for non-integer numbers: IEEE 754 floating point numbers with, most likely, the same level of precision.

This is due to the way the floating-point format works.

Floating point CPU registers can be larger than the floating point type you're working with. This is especially true with float which is typically only 32 bits. A calculation will be computed using all the bits, then the result will be rounded to the nearest representable value before being stored...

I would suggest generating a bound double and then converting to float: return Double.valueOf(random.nextDouble(Float.MIN_VALUE, Float.MAX_VALUE)).floatValue(); The nextDouble method has been replaced in Java 8 with a method to produce a stream of doubles.

java,floating-point,formatting

Either I misread the question or it changed while I was typing, my original answer suggesting DecimalFormat won't do what you're looking for. Regular expressions will: final String unformatted = Double.toString(6381.407812500002); final String formatted = unformatted.replaceAll("00+\\d*$", ""); System.out.println(formatted); Yields: 6381.4078125 You asked for any more than two zeroes and all...

Since x = -10, x**i will alternate between positive and negative high values, and so will -(x**i) which is what is calulated when you write -x**i .np.exp(inf) = inf and np.exp(-inf) = 0 so for high enough numbers, you're alternating between infinity and 0. You probably wanted to write np.exp((-x)**i),...

assembly,floating-point,x86,fpu

Let's start with the first question. It isn't explicitly stated, but I think we can assume we're dealing with little-endian here (every PC you'll get to use today will use that). Thus, if you execute FLD m64p on that memory location, the floating point stack will contain these bytes in...

python,list,floating-point,integer

If ordering isn't important, just use type and a set comprehension. input = [1, 1.0, '1', -1, 1] output = [x[0] for x in {(y, type(y)) for y in input}] print output You can use the same idea to preserve ordering. output = [] output_filter = set() for y in...

You want to use the JB and JA (jump below/above) instructions instead of JL/JG. The COMISS instruction sets the flags as if it were two unsigned integers being compared. This makes the effect on the flags simpler. The COMISS instruction's effect on flags is documented in the Intel 64 and...
