Perl math question

P: 2
Hi,

When I do this in Perl:

if ((35/26) == (0.35/0.26)) {
print "equal\n";
}
else {
print "not equal\n";
}

I got "not equal". Does anyone know why? and solution?

Thanks,

Hao

good question. If you get no answer here ask over on www.perlmonks.com and see if one of the gurus over there has an explanation. I would like to hear what the explanation is.

Cool. I should have known that, I have seen this problem before but the reason escaped me. Thanks for posting back.
