    :

    In Java its a 64bit signed floating point. Generically, its twice the length of a float.

    well double are numbers with floating points....
    eg 2.4
    they are actually the same as floats only the difference is that the space allocated for a double in the memory is bigger (64) than that of a float(32)....
    but on ur question just know that evertime u are declaring a variable and it has decimal points just use double...
