Dear Andrew,

FrontEndExecute[{HelpBrowserLookup["RefGuide","Equal"]}]

I copy from there

"Approximate numbers are considered equal if they differ in at most
their last eight binary digits (roughly their last two decimal digits).
2 == 2. gives True ".

InputForm[1`2 ]
1.`1.9999999999999998
Precision[%]
2.
 
Use SameQ
 
{3. == 3, 3. === 3}
{True, False}
 
Regards
Dimitris
