    Sorry, but I don't understand what to do and what you want, worse, I don't understand the solution, not 8kyu.

    @Yushi.py thanks!
    (yes i was using c++ btw)

    I read Stroustrup's book from beginning to end (which is easy), although now it's all covered in dust, and I'm learning mathematics for data analysis.
    I think it's time to repeat the syntax to maintain the image :)

    When I first saw your name, I thought you were a full on C++ programmer from your name, looks can be deceiving.

    hmm... but once upon a time I knew the C++ syntax, that's what Python does with people :)

    JS's Number data type would also give 1 / 2 === .5, though BigInt would give 1 / 2 === 0.

    This has nothing to do with C++, Python, or the actual issue, I just wanted to throw out there that it's not just Python. Generally, being aware of your datatypes and the typing of your operators is A Good Thing.

    Hi @mosstruck. Please mention the language you're using so we can better help you with your problem. 

    Though, through the littlest of stalkings, I'd infer you're using C++.

    You should note that when you do something like x1 / x2 and both x1 and x2 are integers, their result will also be an integer rather than a float, so 1 / 2 will result in 0, rather than 0.5. The only language I know that resolves this to 0.5 is Python. I suppose this caused @CatPlusPlus's confusion.

    As to resolving the task, you could try turning one of the values to a float or rewriting the expression in a way that doesn't use a division; that's up to you.

    strange, could you clarify in what programming language you wrote this, 0.5 as a float should be stored without data loss (forgive me in advance, I’m writing through a translator, because I’m still too lazy to learn English grammar :) )
