so lets say result of a calculation in solidity is 0.2 or 0.8, when I save that result in a variable does that convert to 0 or 1 ?


Solidity truncates all results, it's equivalent to the floor operation. So if your contract tries to store the result of 9 / 5 in a uint it will simply store 1

  • For stake of completeness: are negative numbers floored as well, or are they rounded towards zero? – jjj Nov 8 '20 at 19:27
  • Negative numbers are rounded up towards zero: -4 / 3 => -1 – MrClottom Nov 8 '20 at 19:36
