Fractions

Fractions, or "fractional numbers" (lit

Integer

Common datatype in many programming languages for representing a whole number

Mantissa larger number

Quality | Example |
---|---|

Larger |
"If the number of bits in the mantissa or fractions is larger than the number of bits in your integer type then you ll possibly lose precision when someone types in a number such as" from question "How to manually parse a floating point number from a string" |

Part bigger then |
"I know there are not that many mantissa bits for fractions part for bigger numbers but you did not specify which floating data-type you are using if 32 64 80 128 256 bits or more so hard to say and if the integer part is bigger then your integral data-type used to cut off the non fractions part then you would be in trouble with f-long f" from question "Need help formatting numbers C++" |

Others

Quality | Example |

Less limited |
"As python integer is less limited than the float you may get bigger results with the fractions if it makes sense at all" from question "Python: An iterating function" |

Part less |
"When you then calculate the integer part is 1 less that you might expect while the fractions part is slightly less than one" from question "Type Casting in Array" |

Part bigger |
"The label s text size of an integer part is bigger than text size of a fractions part" from question "IOS Prevent UILabel text 'shaking' when numbers change" |
