      Unless you specify otherwise, Max expects to be working with integers [Yeah, I know. It's been this way forever, though]. Take a look at the "Number boxes" section here:

      Okay I took a look at number boxes and simple math but i am still not getting the results I need.
      I have a patch with 5 different methods, non of which add 0.25 to the total number..

      This is basic Max behavior and shared by tons of objects.
      Btw, you've been opening new topics/help requests every day in the last couple of weeks and a lot of them for basic issues. Makes me wonder if you're checking the standard resources before posting them: object's help patches and references, the included max/msp/jitter tutorials, searching this forum, etc.

      Thanks for that input...
      I got it working in the end with the use of an accum 0.1
