Hi I am trying to divide two integers ex: 12/13 but I always get a whole integer 1 not a decimal number.

I tried type casting the values to float before hand with no success.

Basically all I want is a decimal result like: 0.923…

```
$x = 12;
$y = 13;
echo $value = $x / $y; //Would like to see 0.923 not 1
```

Under normal circumstances your code should return the floating value

`0.923076`

…The reason you get a rounded integer might be because you have your

`ini setting`

for`"precision"`

set to`0`

, to fix this either edit your`php.ini`

or use`ini_set("precision", 3);`

in your code before the calculation.Another way to workaround this is to use BCmath:

And yet another way without using any extension is to use a little math trick by multiplying the value you want to divide by

`1000`

to get`3 decimals`

.This way you’ll divide

`12000`

by`13`

and the whole part will be`923`

, then since you multiplied by 1e3 insert a comma/dot before the last most 3 places.`echo divideFloat($a, $b); // 0.923`
