# pascal float

In Pascal, the `float`

data type represents floating-point numbers, which are numbers that can have decimal places. This data type is used to store real numbers in Pascal and allows for calculations involving fractional values. You can declare a variable of type `float`

using the `real`

keyword.

Here is an example of declaring and using a `float`

variable in Pascal:

```
program FloatExample;
var
myFloat: float;
begin
myFloat := 3.14;
writeln('The value of myFloat is: ', myFloat);
end.
```

In this example, we declare a variable `myFloat`

of type `float`

and assign it the value `3.14`

. We then use the `writeln`

procedure to output the value of `myFloat`

to the console. The output will be: "The value of myFloat is: 3.14".

You can perform arithmetic operations on `float`

variables, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Here is an example that demonstrates some basic arithmetic operations:

```
program FloatArithmetic;
var
num1, num2, sum, difference, product, quotient: float;
begin
num1 := 5.5;
num2 := 2.5;
sum := num1 + num2;
difference := num1 - num2;
product := num1 * num2;
quotient := num1 / num2;
writeln('Sum: ', sum);
writeln('Difference: ', difference);
writeln('Product: ', product);
writeln('Quotient: ', quotient);
end.
```

In this example, we declare variables `num1`

, `num2`

, `sum`

, `difference`

, `product`

, and `quotient`

of type `float`

. We assign values to `num1`

and `num2`

and then perform various arithmetic operations on them. The results are then printed to the console.
