version: Python 2.6
OS : Windows 7
The variable x below should have been 10(integer) after the expression
evaluates. It ,however, gets the value 10.000000000000002 (float) , as
follows,
--------------------------------------------
>>> x=math.exp ( math.log(10.0))
>>> x
10.000000000000002
>>> x=math.exp ( math.log(10))
>>> x
10.000000000000002
--------------------------------------------
In mathematics, the result is not right.
