So, I'm not 100% sure if this is actually in the correct forum or whether it should be under Mathematics. Anyway, our lecturer told us that we'd soon cover "Floating Point Numbers". Could someone give me a basic, somewhat simple explanation of what these are? Possibly with a few examples. Just so I have an idea of what to expect.
