    ok going to sound really stupid here but I am working out how much i weigh in pounds to update ticker etc -

    I am 13.12

    I x 13 by 14 - 184
    add 12 - 194

    then I divide that by 14 to check and it makes 13.8???????????????



    I must be having a blonde moment?!?!?

    184 + 12 = 196 not 194

    hopefully that should sort the problem :)

    EDIT: ok ignore that - I noticed that the first bit should be 182 not 184 still making the correct total 194.

    The reason it comes out as 13.85 is because when you are dividing it on the calculator it goes to ten decimal points whereas on weight it has to go to 14. It'll never divide to give you the right figure in pounds but 8.5/10s of 14 is 11.9 so the figure you are getting is correct. Does that make sense? I think I lost myself in the middle of that lol
