Java Collection, ArrayList Exercises: Increase the size of an array list

Sample Solution:-

Java Code:

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collections;
  public class Exercise20 {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
          ArrayList<String> c1= new ArrayList<String>(3);
          c1.add("Red");
          c1.add("Green");
          c1.add("Black");
          System.out.println("Original array list: " + c1);
          //Increase capacity to 6
          c1.ensureCapacity(6);
          c1.add("White");
          c1.add("Pink");
          c1.add("Yellow");
          System.out.println("New array list: " + c1);
   }
}

Sample Output:

Original array list: [Red, Green, Black]                               
New array list: [Red, Green, Black, White, Pink, Yellow]

Java: Tips of the Day

Choice between Float and Double:

Data type Bytes used Significant figures (decimal)
Float 4 7
Double 8 15

Double is often preferred over float in software where precision is important because of the following reasons:
Most processors take nearly the same amount of processing time to perform operations on Float and Double. Double offers far more precision in the same amount of computation time.
