It depends. What would you like it to be? All numbers in that range? They're
uncountably infinite, so no way we could ever get that out of the computer.
All actual float values? Depends too much on the implementation of the
specific machine you're working on to be workable.

Identifying values below 48.35 and above 48.45 is simply done by:
if value < 48.35 or value > 48.45 then...

No need to first create the range of values
