shorts numbers math

The maximum value of the `float64` type in Go is 1.79769313486231570814527423731704356798070e+308 and you can get this value using the `math.MaxFloat64` constant.

The minimum value above zero (smallest positive, non-zero value) of the `float64` type in Go is 4.9406564584124654417656879286822137236505980e-324 and you can get this value using the `math.SmallestNonzeroFloat64` constant.

The maximum value of the `float32` type in Go is 3.40282346638528859811704183484516925440e+38 and you can get this value using the `math.MaxFloat32` constant.

The minimum value above zero (smallest positive, non-zero value) of the `float32` type in Go is 1.401298464324817070923729583289916131280e-45 and you can get this value using the `math.SmallestNonzeroFloat32` constant.

``````package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

func main() {
fmt.Printf("min float64: %.50e\n", math.SmallestNonzeroFloat64)
fmt.Printf("max float64: %.50e\n", math.MaxFloat64)

fmt.Printf("min float32: %.50e\n", math.SmallestNonzeroFloat32)
fmt.Printf("max float32: %.50e\n", math.MaxFloat32)
}
``````

Output:

``````min float64: 4.94065645841246544176568792868221372365059802614325e-324
