# Issue

I have two numbers, one I get by calculating it and the other one I bring it from the database.

```
calculated = 2.183333333333333
database = 2.18333333333333
```

But when I compare them to know if they are the same, I return `False`

when it should be `True`

.

There is some way to limit the number of periodic numbers, but not to affect decimals that are not periodic, for example:

```
2.1748888888888 -> 2.1748
1.23333333 -> 1.23
```

# Solution

You could use the `math.isclose`

method:

```
>>> from math import isclose
>>> calculated = 2.183333333333333
>>> database = 2.18333333333333
>>> isclose(calculated, database)
True
```

This allows for setting the relative tolerance and minimum absolute tolerance as well refer to the docs for more explanation.
