a = 246.8
b = 135.79

print "%f + %f = %f"%(a,b,answer)

print "%f - %f = %f"%(a,b,answer)

print "%f * %f = %f"%(a,b,answer)

print "%f / %f = %f"%(a,b,answer)

246.800000 + 135.790000 = 382.590000
246.800000 - 135.790000 = 111.010000
246.800000 * 135.790000 = 33512.972000
246.800000 / 135.790000 = 1.817512

a = 2
b = 12.34

result = a * b
print "%d * %f = %f"%(a,b,result)

print "%f in scientific notation is %e"%(result,result)

print "%d * %f = %d"%(a,b,answer)

2 * 12.340000 = 24.680000
24.680000 in scientific notation is 2.468000e+01
2 * 12.340000 = 24
