The following assignment generates a compilation error:

decimal accountBalance = 1550.30;

This code generates the error. "Literal of type double cannot be implicitly converted to type 'decimal';...". To avoid this error, which suffix would you append to the literal value?

Nope, it doesn't matter.

m and M work equally well.


...and I can't help the triple post.  sometimes it posts multiple times and sometimes it does not.  I think it may be the proxy server I'm going through.
