While not relavent to the discussion anymore, I must say that the level of precision when doing anything technical makes a huge difference. Mathmatically they might be the same, but because we as people cannot be that accurate, they are different.

12.0000 and 12 are vastly different things

You ask a machinist to make you something 12 inches, or to make you something 12.0000 inches you'll get different things... and the second one probably take twice as long to make, and cost you three times as much.
