Solution:

Fractional numeric variables that contain a decimal point are known as floating point variables
 
Explanation
A floating point type variable is a variable that can hold a real number, such as 4320.0, -3.33, or 0.01226. The floating part of the name floating point refers to the fact that the decimal point can “float”; that is, it can support a variable number of digits before and after the decimal point.
