We seem to be talking apples and oranges here. The script was for me to evaluate
student papers, each with a different set of values. It has no application in my
current seventh grade class as a tool for students.

My question was could someone else use it for some other class and/or purpose,
i.e., probably not 7th grade.

As far as the accuracy of JavaScript math, I would assume that end user would
modify the script to fit their needs - typically this sort of script might limit
responses to the 3rd decimal place - or indeed a spreadsheet might be a better
