Hi all,

Thanks in advance for your time.

I am trying to use -- ceil() -- to do the following calculations that
are supposed to give identical results, but the results turn out to be
different. I couldn't figure out the solution to this problem.

The codes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

. di ceil((0.05-0.04)/0.01)
2

. di ceil((0.04-0.03)/0.01)
2


. di (0.04-0.03)/0.01
1

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
