bug in IntegerPart ?

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg47736] bug in IntegerPart ?
  • From: "Dennis de Lang" <lang.NO at science.uva.nl>

Why does the following happen?

In[1]:= (1.65 - 1.3)/0.007
Out[1]:= 50.
In[2]:= IntegerPart[%]
Out[2]:= 49

but:

In[1]:= 0.35/0.007
Out[1]:= 50.
In[2]:= IntegerPart[%]
Out[2]:= 50

I'm puzzled....
