Oops. I just noticed that I forgot to rename the function from "compareDoubles" (used in Problem 44690) to "compareSingles". Unfortunately I cannot make the fix now without breaking the two successful submissions. Sorry about any confusion. —DIV
Good problem, but it would be better if base-10 or base-2 was adopted as a standard at the description. It is confusing to keep changing them. And the function name should probably be compareSingles and not compareDoubles. You can fix the test suite by using try and catch while accepting both names for the function.
Thank-you for the tip about using try & catch. I have modified the Test Suite accordingly, so it should be possible now for Cody players to call their function either "compareSingles" or "compareDoubles". When formatted neatly this workaround code distracted from the core content of the Test Suite, so I have crammed it onto one individual line in each separate Test.
Regarding the problem statement, I think this is like real life, and Cody players can figure it out. Some Cody players will find the conversion obvious, so it won't be a hassle for them; other Cody players might find the conversion less obvious, so it's a small extra challenge and learning opportunity for them. (See also Problem 44690.)
