Closed Bug 356566 Opened 15 years ago Closed 15 years ago
Try the number 43987489047089238383 in the number input box.
JS uses IEEE 754 doubles, which (according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_754#Double-precision_64_bit ) has a 52 bit mantissa. Try asking it to just print 43987489047089238383 ... it shows 43987489047089240000 instead (2^52 is 4503599627370496) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 5856 ***
