 dividing a variable?
Hi. I need some help with the "math" portion in this code on my program.
What I have is a variable \$price and a variable \$Zprice. \$Zprice needs to be 1/2 (50%)of \$price. Any help on how to do that would be appreciated, cuz my mind has just gone blank!
TIA,
Dreamer

Hi Dreamer

\$price = 10;
\$Zprice = \$price * .5;

LOL

Thanks Cure ... I was trying to use an "x" instead of "*" to multiply! While we're on that subject, is there a way to divide the variables, or is it only multiplying?

Again, thanks!!!
