Hello experts:

I'm creating an input form that performs some computations and displays the answer to the user.  What data type would you suggest I use to compute this calculations.  It is pretty much straight up addition with some multiplication and division and does need to be rounded to 2 decimal places.

Thanks

You can use the Double data type, and use the Math.Round method for rounding to two decimal places

If you only need 2 decimal places, Single will give you a slight benefit in memory requirements -- assuming that your results won't be more than +/- 3.4x10^38.

However, the trade-off will be slower performance, since double is the processor-native floating point type.
