    No. I mean the actual range of the floats or doubles, that your compiler can handle. Note that HOW the float or double is expressed (in what format), depends on what you choose to use in your format code for printf() (like %g or whatever).

    To the computer, there is no difference between what you have expressed, above. The value would be the same. The only difference is how you have asked printf() to express that value.
