# RE: [libreoffice-users] a little math problem with Calc

What I found interesting was that Calc (in LO 3.3.2) did not have that problem:

Have A1 hold 11.18
Then A2 = INT(100*(A1-INT(A1)))

works just fine.

I think it would be safest to do

A3 = ROUND(100*(A1-INT(A1)))

though.

Hi.
I tried your function but made the last line Test = r(3).
It does return 17.

My guess is that by the completion of r(2)=r(1)*100 the value is very
slightly less than 18 and int then produces 17.
