Code results in 1, but supposed to be .999991

I believe the following code may have been written erroneously. The comment states ‘Adding 0.001 for a thousand times’. But the code is actually ‘Adding 0.1 for ten times’ which returns 1. Great course on D by the way! Cheers! :slight_smile:

// Adding 0.001 for a thousand times:

    int counter = 1;

    while (counter <= 10) {

        result += 0.1;

        ++counter;

    }

Type your question above this line.
