There is a crucial bug on both WolframAlpha and Mathematica. When we give the input "Floor(sqrt(11.44-10)/0.2)" it gives wrong answer. The actual answer is six (6) but wolframalpha gives five (5). The problem is Wolframalpha calculates 11.44-10 incorrectly. Although the answer is exactly 1.44, engine calculates as 1.4399999999999995.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is suprising that this program cannot give true answer for such an elementary arithmetic equation.
