To replicate what i think is a bug you need a python interpreter in any version. I think. When i type 2.7/100 it returns 0.027000000000000003, but it actually is 0.027 and 2.8/100 returns 0.027999999999999997. And i don't know why

And it appears that these are the only numbers (2.8 and 2.7) that behave like this

This is the expected behavior for float. Python's floats are IEEE 754 double precision floats, not arbitrary preciscion floats. See
