Question Divide By 100 - JDE 4.7

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Everyone

I am dividing a int by 100 and storing the result in float. The result I get is 0.0

int abc = 15;
float xyz = 15/100;

the result is 0.0.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Default

(int) 15 / 100 = 0.15

This result is then truncated when forced into an int (intermediate) value, so it becomes zero.

Try this:

float xyz = 15.0 / 100.0;
