when you use == JS will attempt to coerce the type of one operand to match the type of the other, then check for value equality. when you use === JS will not coerce types, so if they are not the same, the equality test will fail. so '5' == 5 is true due to type coercion, while '5' === 5 is false, because no coercion has occurred.

thx for help! the same happen, for example when: float==int; float===int; ?
