Anyone Else Know? Decimal Calculation Not Working Right

### Post

I thought this was simple but it evidently involves a function I'm not aware of.

1     Field "A" has returned a value of 12.875 inches

2     Field "B" represents that 3 inches goes into 12.875 inches a number of  4.2917 times

3     Field "C" needs to show how many inches of 3 inches does the .2917 represent?

I can't get it figured out via Filemaker means. No problem as a general math issue. I just can't get FM to do it correctly.

Here is the core issue - If you take .2917 of 3" then how many inches is the .2917?

Please check your original thread for my response. Your post may be very clear to you but it's not to others. You appear to be answering the very question you are asking.

Sorry for the duplication Phil. I just know there is an answer here. I'll go back to my original post to communicate on it. I duplicated because I didn't want the post to get lost. Someone knows how to do what I want.
