# 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.

```Hi,

I have a problem with functions I made.

Let's say I create the function:

Function Test (n)
dim r(3)
r(0)=int(n)
r(1)=n-r(0)
r(2)=r(1)*100
r(3)=int(r(2))
Test = r
End Function

Then, in a empty spreadsheet take the following steps:
-select A1:D1
-press [F2]
-Insert the formula =TEST(E1)
-press [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[ENTER]
-insert 11,18 in E1 and see the result in cell D1

I think the result should be 18 but I'm getting 17
Where is the error?

By the way, I downloaded and installed the latest version of LibreOffice
before write this email to make sure that is not a solved bug. And I tried
this at least in 3 computers.

Thanks in Advance
