I assume that when you say does not count 1/2 you actually mean that it results in
0. That's just standard integer math. When you divide an integer by another integer, the result is also an integer. So, it will result in
0 (because the real answer of
0.5 is not an integer). That's typical of most programming languages.
To get a floating point result, at least one of the numbers must, itself, be a float - as you've discovered.
1 / 2.0 or
1.0 / 2 will result in the expected answer of
0.5. So, one or both numbers need to be promoted to a float to get a float answer. You can do that by adding a
.0 to at least one of the values, or wrapping it in a
float call like
You'll need to do one of those to get a float answer...
