Problem 44690. Comparison of floating-point numbers (doubles)
Again, good problem, but it would be better if base-10 or base-2 was adopted as a standard at the description
Hello, Rafael. Thank-you for the feedback. Each approach has pros and cons.
Using the same base for all numbers in the problem statement would make comparison easy at a glance, but the values would not all be exact.
The mixture of bases used in the problem statement means that exact values are used for all numbers; although the reader has some inconvenience to perform a conversion in order to compare magnitudes, there may be some more educational value in that, IMHO.
