In Excel, when I enter 22222.09482 then I see 22222.0948199999 number in the formula bar

Could you please help - as I have a weird situation that when I enter a number 22222.09482 in cell then I see a different number 22222.0948199999 in the formula bar. Below is the snapshot of the problem.

Sample error

I see the same behavior when I enter the following numbers:


but when I enter 11111.09482 and 66666.09482, 77777.09482.. until 99999.09482 then they shows correctly. I am not sure is this related to rounding ? I didn't setup any rounding profiles. Could you please help me in resolving the issue.
