i forgot to add, that as every mathematician and scientist and i would
hope every social scientist should know, if your input has no significant
digits, then your output cannot have any either. therefore if student
scores are reported as 1,2,3,etc., then their grade averages must be
reported as 1,2,3,etc. by that system, 1.999 rounds up to 2 as does
1.500!
