# Calc formula producing disparate result from separate calculator app?

Hi all, there's a cell in a budget document I am using (cell C10) containing the figure $160.63. Another cell multiplies this cell's value by 52 (using the formula =C10*52), which produces the result $8352.63. This is the only formula existing in this cell- there are no other factors that might affect the result.

This is strange as when I run the same calculation through my calculator app I get the result $8352.76 - a small difference, but a different result nonetheless. I'm definitely inputting the figures correctly as I got the same result three times, and verified that it isn't the calculator app as a different calculator app produced the same result: $8352.76.

How is it possible that this result differs from the one generated by the Libreoffice calculation, other than Libreoffice calculations somehow calculating incorrectly? It's a tad concerning!

I can't reproduce this on my system. I get 8352.76 both ways.

If you calculate currency amounts to be displayed in a respective format with a fix number of decimals, always ROUND explicitly (Up? DOWN?) meeting your needs.
