JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Working With Numbers Storing Numbers in Variables

is 0.00 not a floating point number?

For some reason when I do the following question, set price equal to 0.00, and press check work it is saying that my answer is incorrect. Is 0.00 not considered a floating point number?:

Add a second variable named price and store a floating point value (a number with a decimal) in it.

var age = 0;
var price = 0.0000;

0.00 is a floating point number, but not one that the code challenge will accept. 0.01 works though, I guess you can't make the price "free" :-)
