Does a division by an integer really deliver reasonable output?

I think, he is referring to the often asked problem of rounding and typecasting during division for almost all programming languages. If this was your intention, this was a great question. You know, you have two operators '/' and '//'. The first one casts your division into float and the second one rounds it into an integer and always rounds down to the next int in the process.

it depends on what you're dividing with the integer, cause you can't divide a string with an integer that's like saying; python/3

sorry Samuel my question concerned type casting i.e. whether it must be 1./2. rather than 1/2 or 1/2. or 1./2 for the expected result 0.5 you know some languages cause performs with non floats when you divide them
