View Thread: 850 * 77.1 is 65535... unless you're Microsoft Excel.

    At this site an investigator performed a simple loop to calculate (65535/x)*x for x = 1, ..., 65535.  For over 10,000 values of x, it gave 100,000 rather than 65,535 as the answer.

    If you have a stock whose value is fluctuating close to 77, keep watching the ticker to see when to sell 850 shares of it!
