Could
you adapt that function so that it does a floor after n places instead?
I assume you could just replace "trunc" with "floor" everywhere. I have
a decimal to rational number question that always has issues with the
last digit getting rounded which causes lots of troubles with students.
i.e. Show that 8.60886088608861 is a rational number. Of course I know that I should write a fancy latex macro that does the overline notation in the right place, but one thing at a time.
