ceil ceils what should be an integer

P: 1
I have a simple calculation, which results in 110, but when i use ceil on the result i get 111, is there something hidden in the result variable?


$result = 66/(100-40)*100;
echo "Result: $result | with Ceil: ". ceil($result);

update: i found a solution here:

$result = round($result,2); // does the trick

hi ,
you need to look at the floval() and intval() function also if you are dealing with decimal calculations to preserve the decimal places when adding or subtracting , specially when dealing with shopping carts and other price calculation based work
