Predicate  inexact? 

Parameters  n, a number 
Purpose  Determines if n is not an exact number, and therefore approximated. 
Produces  A truth value: true (#t )
if n is not an exact number,
false (#f ) if it is an exact number.
A number is exact if Scheme represents it exactly (with
no rounding off). 
Preconditions  Only one parameter (verified). n is a number (verified). 
Examples  > (inexact? 'a) inexact?: expects argument of type <number> given a > (inexact? 12.2) #t > (inexact? 3) #f > (inexact? 3 4) inexact?: expects 1 argument, given 2: 3 4 > (inexact?) inexact?: expects 1 argument, given 0
