Floating Point Calculation Functions

There are two types of numbers, reals and integers. An integer is a 'whole' number, whether positive or negative. It has no decimal symbol. A real includes a decimal symbol.

WinTask does not support real type but is able to make the calculation of the add, sub, muti, div, of 2 real numbers.

A real number is assigned using a string variable:
a$="78.35"
