I have a simple query and I am mulitplying the LOT_SIZE*LOT_QUANTITY / LOT_PRICE so I can get a per unit cost.

Here is what I have tried:  
SAMPLE DATA:   30 size    with   11 quantity   with cost of $3341.36    (answer should be $10.13)

I am using:

Unit_Cost: [LOT_COST]\([LOT_SIZE]*[LOT_QUANTITY])
- I keep getting answer of 10. The system is rounding for me and I dont want it to.

The backslash \ character does integer math, where 7 \ 4 = 1, and not 1.75.
Perhaps you meant to do / ?
