Double data type using

For what values can I use the double data type?


simply said the double data type is used for large numbers with decimal places.

If you’re rather looking for the sophisticated definition, the double data type is a double-precision 64-bit IEEE 754 floating point. The double precision type typically has a range of around 1E-307 to 1E+308 with a precision of at least 15 digits. Values that are too large or too small will cause an error. Rounding may take place if the precision of an input number is too high. Numbers too close to zero that are not representable as distinct from zero will cause an underflow error. For decimal values, this data type is generally the default choice.
