I want a method or function that can divide, take decimal places, convert them to numbers and distribute them to numbers without decimal places. The function or method could return something like this:

5:2 =2.5 and output 2 and 3 where 3 is 2+1 and this one is the convertion of 0.5 decimal place.

5:2 =2.5 and output 2 and 3 where 3 is 2+1 and this one is the convertion of 0.5 decimal place.

Though i'm not aware of F# syntaxes i'm trying to give a psuedo code in c#

string ConvertToNumbers(stringexpression)

{

var expSplit = stringexpression.split(":").ToArrayList();

string divexp = expSplit[0]/expSplit[1];

int firstnum = Math.Ceiling(divexp) - 1;

int secondnum = Math.Ceiling(divexp);

return firstnum + "," + secondnum;

}

string ConvertToNumbers(stringexpression)

{

var expSplit = stringexpression.split(":").ToArrayList();

string divexp = expSplit[0]/expSplit[1];

int firstnum = Math.Ceiling(divexp) - 1;

int secondnum = Math.Ceiling(divexp);

return firstnum + "," + secondnum;

}

As per I have understood your requirement, you want to divide two values* (for e.g. 5 by 2)*, and then want to roundoff them to nearest integer number.

**For same code below in F#:**

**Understanding the code:**

(1) open System is equivalent to using System in C#

(2) Declared function named divide that accepts two arguments x and y, and then return result of type decimal. This is calculated automatically by F# compiler.

(3) Third we have called the divide function in*main function _* , rounded off the result by using *ceil* method of Math class. And at last showed the result to user by Console.WriteLine.

Note: Select the entire code in VS IDE and then right click --> select *Send to Interactive (Alt + Enter)*

Hope this helps.

//using System

open System

// Function for dividing

let divide x y =

x / y

// _ is main function in F#

let _ =

let result = divide 5M 2M

let roundOff = ceil result

Console.WriteLine roundOff

try this

open System

let divide x y =

x / y

let _ =

let result = divide 5M 2M

let roundOff = ceil result

Console.WriteLine roundOff
