# An Invisible Threat - Floating Point Error

Since the invention of computers - and continuing until today - real number calculations have produced unreported and invisible errors, sometimes catastrophically.

** Why? **To perform calculations, computers use a floating point representation of real numbers as an approximation.

** What’s the problem? **Representing real decimal numbers with a fixed number of binary digits, as is common in our computers today, introduces computational errors that can accumulate uncontrollably, especially as calculations become more complex.

# Know It

**Knowing is the first step**. True North Floating Point system keeps track of the error so that it’s always known.

Though floating point error cannot be eliminated, it can be managed - becoming known instead of invisible - using the True North bounded floating point system.

# Control It

**Take control of the accuracy of your calculations with True North Floating Point**, which provides fail-safe representation by maintaining boundaries for the real number values represented.
