The reason is float type in Java is not so accurate 32- bit. Instead of float type you can use double or even BigDecimal - it depends on accuracy you need. You can read more about it here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27598078/float-and-double-datatype-in-java. Hope that explanation can help you.
