Wrong! It's 0.30000000000000004. Getting JS to evaluate basic decimal math is a StackOverflow greasy rabbit hole of hacky solutions guaranteed to work for at least a week. JavaScript needs a 3rd-party 24KB library to accomplish basic decimal math(1), alternatively you can use the new (and not well supported) BigInt() to pretend you're doing decimal math by string hacking decimal points into super long integers.

Setting out to prove his point, Hyppönen’s company F-Secure set up a free WiFi hotspot in the heart of London’s financial district in June 2014. Buried in the terms and conditions of the free network was a “Herod clause”: in exchange for the WiFi, “the recipient agreed to assign their first born child to us for the duration of eternity”.
