public static method Approximately(a: float, b: float): bool;
public static bool Approximately(float a, float b);

Description

Compares two floating point values and returns true if they are similar.

Floating point imprecision makes comparing floats using the equals operator inaccurate. For example, (1.0 == 10.0 / 10.0) might not return true every time. Approximately() compares two floats and returns true if they are within a small value (Epsilon) of each other.

if (Mathf.Approximately(1.0, 10.0/10.0))
    print ("The values are approximately the same");
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { void Example() { if (Mathf.Approximately(1.0F, 10.0F / 10.0F)) print("The values are approximately the same"); } }
