Some decimals, when multiplied with others, give wrong solutions:

6.23*5 = 31.150000000000002
6.89*5 = 34.449999999999996

There are more but I can't list all.

Thanks for the report. I think this a known limitation and not a bug. Please read more about floating point limitation at . I would propose closing this. Similar issue reported few days back : issue34907
