a math problem . . . i hope atleast

hey all, hope you're having a good weekend. one of my functions isn't returning what i think should be a proper value, so i was hoping to post it, surf around a bit, and then someone will by magic solve all my problems and i don't have to do the work:D will that person be you?

here's the function: Code:

`int Player::mf_playerStats_battingAve(char fv_mgrDirection)`

{

//bunt

if (fv_mgrDirection=='b'||'B')

{return ((2*bat_aim)+bat_str+(rand() % lck));}

//left grounder

if (fv_mgrDirection=='l'||'L')

{return ((bat_str)+(.75*bat_aim)+(rand() % lck));}

//right grounder

if (fv_mgrDirection=='r'||'R')

{return ((bat_str)+(.75*bat_aim)+(rand() % lck));}

//sacrafice fly

if (fv_mgrDirection=='s'||'S')

{return ((bat_aim)+(bat_str)+(rand() % lck));}

//homerun********should run this if*************

if (fv_mgrDirection=='h'||'H')

{return ((.5*bat_str)+(bat_aim)+(rand() % lck));}

//default

else

{return ((.5*bat_str)+(bat_aim)+(rand() % lck));}

}

here's the values acording to the debugger: Quote:

bat_aim 10

bat_str 10

fv_mgrDirection 104 'h'

lck 10

+ this 0x0012ff48

rand returned 29372

so, as i see it the equation should read:

(.5*10)+(10)+(2)==19, right?

well, on this occasion it came up with 32. all the returned values tend to be in the low 30's. so what gives? what am i missing? thanks in advance :)
