Better you check it online if the result is right.
I checked it with 1.0 and 0.3.


Thanks. In this case, 999 and 999.0 produces the same binary representation which is:

'0100000010001111001110000000000000000000000000000000000000000000'

So python treats them as the same?

Hi, anybody else knows the answer?
