    Thumbs up What are the results for these?

    Hi I'm not really sure how to solve this, if a system supports ten digits of precision for floating-point numbers, what are the results for the following computations?
    a. 1.4E+12 + 100.0
    b. 4.2E-8 + 100.0
    c. 3.2E-5 + 3.2E+5

    Thank You.

    Don't spam the same homework all over the web.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
