64-59.62x92 = 64-5485.04 (multiply before subtract) = -5421.04

As a decimal fraction this is:

4

-5421 ----

100

Multiplying by 111987 keeping as decimal fraction is:

-5421 * 111987 - (4/100) * 111987

= - 607081527 - 447948/100 = - 607081527 - 4479 - 48/100 = - 607086006 48/100

I doubt it.

Boy let me tell you what:

I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.

And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Sorry there, kiana, but "111987" looked like someone just jabbed the 1 a few times and then ran their fingers over a few more keys. Such an odd number.
