A1=35.0

A2=3.00

A3=quotient(A1,A2)

A3 is currently returning 11.00. But the format for all cells is "number", with 2 decimal places explicitly set.

How do you format cell A3 to return the value 11.67? This problem is not isolated to this specific worksheet; it occurs in all my Excel files.

The QUOTIENT() function is specifically designed to only return whole integers. If you want the exact value, just use regular division.

In Cell A3 put this =A1/A2 instead of the quotient function.
