# Litle problem with a number rounded...

## Recommended Posts

I want calculate the time in hour, minutes and seconds,but in some cases the rounding isn't good.

```\$Distance = 1000
\$Heures = 1
\$Minutes = 60
\$Secondes = 60
; Calcul du temps en secondes :
\$Temps = ((\$Heures*60)*60)+(\$Minutes*60)+\$Secondes; Calcul de la vitesse en km/h :
\$Vitesse = Round(((\$Distance/\$Temps) * 3.6), 1)
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
\$Temps_km = (1000 * \$Temps)/\$Distance ; Temps en secondes
\$Temps_km_h = Floor(\$Temps_km/3600) ; OK
\$Temps_km_m = Floor(Mod((\$Temps_km/3600), 1) * 60) ; OK
\$Temps_km_s = Round(Mod(Mod((\$Temps_km/3600), 1) * 60, 1) * 60)
ConsoleWrite("Temps ensecondes : " & \$Temps & @CRLF & "Vitesse en km/h : " & \$Vitesse & @CRLF & "Temps au km : " & \$Temps_km_h & " h " & \$Temps_km_m & " m " &\$Temps_km_s & " s" & @CRLF)```

The result is Temps au km : 2h 0m 60s and I want 2h 1m :-)

I want calculate the time in hour, minutes and seconds,but in some cases the rounding isn't good.

It's the whole binary representation of decimal numbers problem again. You're going to need to do some checking after your math and before your output.

If s=60, then m=m+1 and s=0

If m=60, then h=h+1 and m=0

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

This is a simple fix except for it lacking a way to set \$Temp_km_s to the remainder.

```If \$Temps_km_s >= 60 Then
\$Temps_km_m += \$Temps_km_s/60
\$Temps_km_s = 0
EndIf```

Your script seems to calculate the minutes effectively unless the amount of remaining seconds are exactly 60.

I hope this helps.

```If \$Temps_km_s >= 60 Then
\$Temps_km_m += \$Temps_km_s/60
\$Temps_km_s = 0
EndIf```

You forgot to check if adjusting \$Temps_km_m will cause it to reach 60 and thus needing to adjust \$Temps_km_h.

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

I wanted to see if there was a way to get the remainder so here is another example.

```If \$Temps_km_s >= 60 Then
\$Temps_km_m += \$Temps_km_s/60
\$Remainder = StringSplit(Round(\$Temps_km_s/60, 1), ".")
\$Temps_km_s = \$Remainder[2]
If \$Temps_km_m >= 60 Then
\$Temps_km_h += \$Temps_km_m/60
\$Remainder = StringSplit(Round(\$Temps_km_m/60, 1), ".")
\$Temps_km_m = \$Remainder[2]
EndIf
EndIf```

Try this, you're all over complicating things:

```\$Distance = 1000
\$Heures = 1
\$Minutes = 60
\$Secondes = 65
; Calcul du temps en secondes :
\$Temps = ((\$Heures * 3600) + (\$Minutes * 60) + \$Secondes); Calcul de la vitesse en km/h :
\$Vitesse = Round(((\$Distance / \$Temps) * 3.6), 1)
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
\$Temps_km = (1000 * \$Temps) / \$Distance ; Temps en secondes
\$Temps_km_h = Int(\$Temps / 3600) ; OK
\$Temps_km_m = Int((\$Temps - (\$Temps_km_h * 3600)) / 60)
\$Temps_km_s = Int((\$Temps - (\$Temps_km_h * 3600) - (\$Temps_km_m * 60)))
ConsoleWrite("Temps ensecondes : " & \$Temps & @CRLF & "Vitesse en km/h : " & \$Vitesse & @CRLF & "Temps au km : " & \$Temps_km_h & " h " & \$Temps_km_m & " m " &\$Temps_km_s & " s" & @CRLF)```

Perhaps, but at least we didn't change the original problem.

`\$Temps_km_h = Int(\$Temps / 3600)   ;  does not equal the original ...  \$Temps_km_h = Floor(\$Temps_km/3600) ; OK`

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

The original problem was that it wasn't working, this works as intended. What's the issue you're seeing?

OP is dividing \$Temps_km by 3600.

You are dividing \$Temps by 3600.

\$Temps_km in OP's equation is previously also divided by \$Distance.

Two different results.

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

I'd just add a work variable and simplify life even more:

```\$Temps_km = (1000 * \$Temps)/\$Distance ; Temps en secondes
\$Temps_km_h = Int(\$Temps_km/3600)
Local \$tmp_Temps = \$Temps_km - \$Temps_km_h * 3600
\$Temps_km_m = Int(\$tmp_Temps/ 60)
\$Temps_km_s = \$tmp_Temps - \$Temps_km_m * 60```

I see what you're saying now, simple fix. Change every instance of \$Temps in the calculations to \$Temps_km and it works out correctly. It just so happened that the distance figure he used in his example made the calculations the same for either variable.

Here's the updated script using the correct figures.

```\$Distance = 10000
\$Heures = 1
\$Minutes = 60
\$Secondes = 65
; Calcul du temps en secondes :
\$Temps = ((\$Heures * 3600) + (\$Minutes * 60) + \$Secondes); Calcul de la vitesse en km/h :
\$Vitesse = Round(((\$Distance / \$Temps) * 3.6), 1)
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
; Calcul du temps au km : Temps = Distance / vitesse
\$Temps_km = (1000 * \$Temps) / \$Distance ; Temps en secondes
\$Temps_km_h = Int(\$Temps_km / 3600) ; OK
\$Temps_km_m = Int((\$Temps_km - (\$Temps_km_h * 3600)) / 60)
\$Temps_km_s = Int((\$Temps_km - (\$Temps_km_h * 3600) - (\$Temps_km_m * 60)))
ConsoleWrite("Temps ensecondes : " & \$Temps & @CRLF & "Vitesse en km/h : " & \$Vitesse & @CRLF & "Temps au km : " & \$Temps_km_h & " h " & \$Temps_km_m & " m " &\$Temps_km_s & " s" & @CRLF)```

Also, yes it would be much simpler to read it if you use variables to hold the intermediate calculations, but the results are the same.

Thanks a lot BrewManNH !!!!

You are a genius man ! You have the good sense
