Science calculator displaying incorrect calculations/numbers

I've tried to think of every possible reason that this could be wrong, but honestly, it just looks like a bug.

In the screenshot of my science calculator, you'll notice I hovered the mouse pointer over the Housing science percentage on the right. It says I am at 18.8%, and that my maximum is 18.9%, which is fine. Except notice the area where it summarizes the Housing science. It says this:

Science Bonus: 18.9%
Points Needed: 48,185
Points to Learn: 0

The bar says I am at 18.9%, but the number next to the bar says I am at 18.8%. As you can see, my current Housing science points are well over 48,185 (48,888 to be exact), yet it still tells me I am at 18.8% Housing science. Which is correct, because that is what I'm at in the game itself. But how can 18.9% cost 48,185 points when 18.8% costs MORE than that? According to the numbers, I should be at 18.9% Housing science. The bar itself says I can learn more, but the summary says I can't learn anymore and that I am at the maximum of 18.9% Housing science. Yet I am not. Am I going insane?

Edit reason: So, um, how am I supposed to attach a screenshot if I'm only allowed 153k?

And just for the record, I upped my schools, and now the calculator says that the points I have in Housing science should equal 20.2% -- but the game says I only have 20.1% from the same number of points. I wish I had more info, sorry. Just looks like a glitch somewhere, good luck.

It's good thing that you look at the numbers, bcs it's a HUGE difference between 18.8% and 18.9%, HUGE!!

Yes, you're witty and sarcastic, I'm much amused. Really.

But this is called "reporting a bug". No matter how small the difference might be, it's still incorrect, and still possibly a bug. Thanks for playing.

If you want someone to help you more information is needed. Race, acres, schools, happiness and probably more affect your sciences. It's hard to reproduce a problem when the relevant information is not given.

Good point. Halfling, 850 acres, 5.9% schools originally, 0% universities, Joyous, umm... I can't think of anything else that affects science off the top of my head. And it's not exactly a "problem" that I need help with, I could care less if it displays a percentage off on the calc. But I would imagine BG -does- care, so I offered it forth.

Maybe there's some rounding in the amount of schools? Did you copy your main page so Angel can recalculate your science cost before copying the science page?
