You forgot about the implicit casts. An int will implicitedly cast to a float. Hence, it is possible to (look like) assign an int literal to a float (but it is really a cast).

But, if you try to assign a *floating point value* to the float variable without using "f", it will give you the compilation error as you expected.

10 is a int literal
10.0 is a double literal
