JavaScript FAQ Knowledge Base

Not worth reading

I could not use the answer to "Q7 How do you round a number to a X decimal places?". At least in Netscape 4.05, you cannot multiply decimal numbers and expect a correct answer. For instance, in Netscape 4.05, 74.85 * Math(10,2) = 7485.999999. I'm guessing this is because Javascript treats these numbers as floating point, and therefore handles the decimals imprecisely. My solution is to work in integers for doing calculations, and then convert them to decimals whenever I need to display them (such as in a calculator). Any other insights would be greatly appreciated.
