Description:
------------
Some strange calculating mistake
It seems to happen in the second line at 7/100*100, echos zero, had to be zero but internal it seems thats not zero

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?

$share=100;
$discount=7/100*$share;
$brutto=5.8824/100*(100+19);
$brutto=round($brutto,2);
echo $brutto."-".$discount."=";
$new=$brutto-$discount;
echo $new;

?>

Expected result:
----------------
7-7=0

Actual result:
--------------
7-7=-8.881784197E-16

Floating point values have a limited precision. Hence a value might 
not have the same string representation after any processing. That also
includes writing a floating point value in your script and directly 
printing it without any mathematical operations.

If you would like to know more about "floats" and what IEEE
754 is, read this:

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
