The good news

The good news about doing arithmetic using operands of integer types is that as long as the result is within the allowable value range for the wider of theinteger types, the results are exact (floating arithmetic often produces results that are not exact) .

The bad news

The bad news about doing arithmetic using operands of integer types is that when the result is not within the allowable value range for the wider of theinteger types, the results are garbage, having no usable relationship to the correct result (floating arithmetic has a high probability of producing approximately correct results, even though the results may not be exact).

For this specific case ...

As you can see by the answer to this question, when a value of 2 was added to the largest positive value that can be stored in type int , the incorrect result was a very large negative value.

The result is simply incorrect. (If you know how to do binary arithmetic, you can figure out how this happens.)

No safety net in this case -- just garbage

Furthermore, there was no compiler error and no runtime error. The program simply produced an incorrect result with no warning.

You need to be especially careful when writing programs that perform arithmetic using operands of integer types. Otherwise, your programs mayproduce incorrect results.

Answer 5

C. 4.294967294E9

Explanation 5

Mixed-type arithmetic

This program illustrates the use of arithmetic operators with operands of different types.

Declare and initialize an int

The method named doMixed declares a local variable of type intnamed myIntVar and initializes it with the largest positive value that can be stored in type int .

Evaluate an arithmetic expression

An arithmetic expression involving myIntVar is evaluated and the result is passed as a parameter to the println method where it is displayed on the computer screen.

Multiply by a literal double value

The arithmetic expression uses the multiplication operator (*) to multiply the value stored in myIntVar by 2.0 (this literal operand is type double by default) .

Automatic conversion to wider type

When arithmetic is performed using operands of different types, the type of the operand of the narrower type is automatically converted to the type of theoperand of the wider type, and the arithmetic is performed on the basis of the wider type.

Result is of the wider type

The type of the result is the same as the wider type.

In this case ...

Because the left operand is type double , the int value is converted to type double and the arithmetic is performed as type double .

This produces a result of type double , causing the floating value 4.294967294E9 to be displayed on the computer screen.

Answer 4

C. 2147483647

Explanation 4

Uses a cast operator

This program, named Ap013.java , differs from the earlier program named Ap012.java in one important respect.

This program uses a cast operator to force the compiler to allow a narrowing conversion in order to assign a double value to an int variable.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
