    Calculator glitch...

    So, I was doing some banking calculations on my Droid X's included calculator when I got this:

    440.64 - 440.25 = .40999999999

    Someone not program the calculator right? I know when Windows 95 first was released in the '90s the included calculator had some simple math computation problems. Has anyone else had problems like this?

    Cary.

    My D2 does the same, except I get .389999

    Could be software, but my bet is hardware.

    Ooops, I had the last numbers of my cents backwards. Should have been .24 and .65, which subtracting them should have returned .41. Either way, good to know there's a problem computing numbers with integer and decimal values. I didn't have a problem subtracting decimal numbers alone.

    My bets on the floating point process too.
