Output Question

12 February 2013 - 06:41 PM

so am doing this exercise from my text book. and my code is as followed 

public class Census{
    public static void main(String[] args){
        double population;
        double birth = 86400/7;
        double death = 86400/13;
        double immigrant = 86400/45;
        double total;
        total = birth + immigrant - death;
        total = total * 365;
        population = total + 312032486; 


My output to the console is 3.14812326E8


 When i do this problem step by step on my calculation i get the following output 312040102.7.


Why are the numbers so different?

How should I tackle programming

15 November 2012 - 12:06 AM

Hey everyone I've been studying programming for about 3-4months now and I am not finding myself having a hard time learning this. I really want to learn how to make video games I don't see myself being happy doing anything other than that. Art is out of the question my art skills suck. Anyone got any tips that can really help me out videos or books that can help me look at programming in another way to really understand.

I understand the concepts of programming. Loops statements, classes, fields, methods, arrays, if-statements. Logical operators. I have a hard time putting everything together to make a functional program.
