    Exclamation URGENT! Due in one hour. Please help!

    So I thought my program was perfect until I tried to input "1.15" through this: Math.rint(amount*100)/100;

    It outputs as 1.14

    I don't get it. Other numbers work Please help, I don't know why is that.

    Thank you!

    I would have been inclined to help you if you weren't rude by:

    Marking your post as urgent.
    Imposing a deadline upon us.
    Crossposting.

    I had a problem similar to this not long ago and I had to implement my numbers with the BigDecimal class... Basically it was a thing calculating money and it would give out very weird values when doing very simple math ( I recall 0.07 * 3 = 0.2100000000002 or something like that).

    I'm sorry to have come off as rude, I didnt mean to. I panicked and let my emotions take over me.
