# Double give me wrong value after it was calculated multiple times

I get the open price value from the selected position. Assume that the selected position price I got is 0.20 Then I sum it up with 0.1. So, I got 0.30 for the first calculation. When I do it multiple times until the value is 0.50. When I do the calculation for 0.5 (plus with 0.1 again), I got 0.5000000001. What was happenned and what should I do to deal with this situation.

Thank you

Floating point has infinite number of decimals, it's your not understanding floating point and that some numbers can't be represented exactly. (like 1/10.)
