Units, dude. Units. Just /add/ two numbers with different denominators, and you get into this problem right away. Granted, you can make do with 400th of a cent, but then you need to get into the whole least common denominator game, and you should have used rationals to begin with. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
