Hi,

 

I am facing some cases where while performing some calculation, when I take square root of a value with sqrt function and then re-square the result with **2, the result is not same as that of the original value. The differences are very small like x.xxxxxxE-17.

 

Not sure why this is happening.

 

Is there any alternative way to **2, so that result will remain same.
