Just tested this in MySQL 4.0:

mysql> select 3.41E+7,3.41E7,3.41E+7=3.41E7;
+----------+----------+----------------+
| 3.41E+7  | 3.41E7   | 3.41E+7=3.41E7 |
+----------+----------+----------------+
| 34100000 | 34100000 |              1 |
+----------+----------+----------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
