I don't know what's wrong but when I write on the IDLE 
it gives an answer like 8.59999999996 or similar
when I write on the IDLE
print 2.3+6.3
the answer is 8.6 as I expected
I tried these two commands on the DrPython IDE;the result was the same.

Below, I copy-past everything on the consol screen with detail of my
system configuration. And I ask if someone can help me with this?
Thank you in advance.
