confused by a simple question

Dear NCL'ers:

I'm trying some simple multiplications and got confused:

ncl 25> b=1.098
ncl 26> c=1.3e11
ncl 27> d=130000000000
ncl 28> print(b*c)
(0) 1.4274e+11
ncl 29> print(b*d)
(0) 1.263777e+09

What I expect is that the command 28 and 29 have the same result since "c"
equals "d". I don't figure out at the moment why they are different. I
wonder what the mistake is in my expressions?

Thank you!
