Floating Point Error? Maybe Bug?

In a function I have written to create Non-Integer bit rate, I receive the
following problem.

fix(9*8.1+8.1)=80 this should be fix(9*8.1+8.1)=81 since (9*8.1+8.1) =81.0
but matlab comes up with 80.9999999999.

Is this me, or what? I have a Pentium 200 MMX. Is there a fix for this?

Change the AT in my e-mail address to @ to respond. I am trying to slow
down the automated spam.
