# subtraction using variables

## subtraction using variables

(OP)
Hi

I have two variables like

a=1.22
b=1.55
operation is:
c=a-b

The problem is that the variable C dosn't have decimals..so the result when I write the variable is 0 and not 0.33

How can i format this operation in order to mantain the decimals?

Thanks

### RE: subtraction using variables

Think you need to show us your code, as - with the info provided so far - c certainly ought to have decimals. And does here. This simple program shows the correct result:

a=1.22
b=1.55
c=a-b
MsgBox c
