# In Go, NaN does not equal NaN

It's false, it returns false.

```
fmt.Println(math.NaN == math.NaN)
```

Don't fret though, there is a function that can tell you whether or not a value is `NaN`

.

```
fmt.Println(math.IsNaN(math.Log(-1.0)))
```

The above returns true and all is well with the world. Don't use math.NaN as a sentinel value, it does not work, use the `math.IsNaN`

function.
