Re: precision of numbers


Hi,
instead of 445.25 use 44525/100. That is not the same in Mathematica.

In[1]:=15525600000*(44525/100)*24
Out[1]=165906561600000
If you want exact results you must have exact numbers in input (never use 
_Real in computations where you like exact results).

Greetings,
Drago Ganic
