Hello,

I was making a countdown timer for a game I am making. I have made countdown timers before in Java as well as inside ComputerCraft. However, there is something weird that I just cannot pin-point for the life of me.

I am making two variables: mins and secs. Mins is mins = timerMinutes/60, and seconds is secs = timerMinutes%60. I believe that is correct.

However, the weird thing is that timerMInutes/60 is spitting out a bunch of numbers like so -> http://imgur.com/a/3grO7

I am pretty experienced with CC, but I still don't know everything. I am not sure if there is something I am missing here, but I just remember doing the same type of method to make a timer in Java. I am sure there is an easy enough solution to this.

Any help appreciated, thank you!

Well, that's the actual result of the division operation. You probably want to math.floor() the result of the division, and use that number.

Thank you! Like I said I knew there was probably something I was missing or something else I could do. I will give it a try!
