In programming a floating point or float is a variable type that is used to store floating point number values.

32bits single precisionfloating point representation 64bitsrepresent double. An example is double double arithmetic sometimes used for the c type long double. A number is represented as an unevaluated sum of several floating point numbers. The only objective is to collect points and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly smoothly and elegantly.

A floating point number is one where the position of the decimal point can float rather than being in a fixed position within a number. The ieee standard for floating point arithmetic ieee 754 is a technical standard for floating point arithmetic established in 1985 by the institute of electrical and electronics engineers ieee. Double precision floating point format sometimes called fp64 or float64 is a computer number format usually occupying 64 bits in computer memory. The standard addressed many problems found in the diverse floating point implementations that made them difficult to use reliably and portably.

A real number that is a number that can contain a fractional part. Floating point is used to represent fractional values or when a wider range is needed than is provided by. Examples of floating point numbers are 123 87425 and 90394542. The following are floating point numbers.

It represents a wide dynamic range of numeric values by using a floating radix point.
