    Use the power of integer division!

    int addNum = 2*(userInput / 100);

    With integer division, 555/100 would be 5, for example. Then you multiply that by two. Integer division basically just drops the decimal (or floors the number).

    ahh but wat if its a double?
    i might as well show you the question to help
    3 Long-term benefits (LTB) are charged at $2 per every full $100 of gross weekly earnings to a maximum LTB payment of $100 per week. An example of a gross weekly pay of $163 will result in a $2 LTB deduction, as there is only one full $100 amount. Make sure you understand the requirement.
    thanks again

    If it's a double, either convert to an integer first (applicable if your value is guaranteed to fit into an integral type) or use the floor() function (which is general, within basic limits of floating point precision).
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
