Missing something very simple on my code

Hi everyone , I know I'm missing something very simple here but I'm trying to print the result of a simple calculation and it always prints zero... can anyone help please:

here's my snippet:

Code:
 
Code
    int countWins;
int countAllTrades;
countWins = 10;
countAllTrades = 20;
winPct = 100*(countWins/countAllTrades);
Print("---- probabilities :-) ");
Print("# countAllTrades = " + countAllTrades.ToString() + 
      ", countWins = " + countWins + " (" + winPct.ToString() + ")" ); 
and here's what is printing..
---- probabilities :-)
# countAllTrades = 20, countWins = 10 (0)

not sure why I'm getting zero for the winPct...

Can anyone help please?

Because Int/Int => Int

So:
 
Code
                            
winPct 100*countWins/countAllTrades
is better.

Or, if you want to keep the useless/confusing () :
 
Code
                            
winPct 100*((float)countWins/(float)countAllTrades);

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
