    if you have something that's a floating point, or another primitive, you need to convert before using it with another primitive, I.E., Casting... In Java you do float f = 10; int i = (Int) f; or if you have a string. String s + "hi"; int a = Integer.parseInt(s);

    To be clear it is a warning and not an error, this means that your code will compile. The warning is telling you that you will lose some precision from the conversion. And as @KonradZuse pointed out, just like in Java, you use casting in C. float f = 10.0; int a; a = (int)f;

    depending on the situation it can be an error. Some things can only take in floats, or ints, and doing something else wont work at all.
