Single

Synopsis

This represents a 32-bit single-precision floating number as a value type. The value of a single can range approximately from -3.4x1038 to 3.4x1038, and can also be set to one of the following fields: PositiveInfinity, NegativeInfinity, and NaN (not a number). In C#, this type is aliased as float.
