Perhaps the simplest - and most easily documented way would be to take

advantage of the auitomatic type conversion:

make your formula 1.0*a/b and then 4/5 will become a real.

Alternately you could set the "required type" on one of your

input terminals as "real" and force the type conversion.

obtain a real value as a solution, or simply change an int to a real value?

(e.g. 4/5 = 0 if the answer is an int32 and what I want is 0.8 as a solution)

thank you very much
