    The first one is an integer division really. It divides an integer by another integer (the result of which is again an integer) and assigns the result to a double variable.

    Only the second one yields a double as result.

    integer / integer => result is integer, even though assigned to a double variable
    integer or double / double => result is double

    first example will divide integers and assign them to your double "z", second divides doubles in the first place

    Integer/Integer is an Integer even if you assign it to a holder variable of type double.To get a double precision value,you need to do your arithmetic operations using double variables
