In ByDesign all currencies are assigned the number of decimal places based on the ISO standard for the currency.

You are using an amount element - which is a compound data type made up of two components Decimal Value (content) and Currency Code. And you also have a quantity field - which if you are using the data type "Quantity" this is also a compound field made up of Decimal Value (content) and UnitCode (for UoM)

My BO looks like this

[Label("Original Price")]	element Price: Amount;
[Label("New Price")]		element NPrice: Amount;
[Label("Quantity")]		element OrigQty: Quantity;

the result of the calculation is rounded automatically based on the number of decimal places assigned to the currency code.

var origPrice  = this.Price.content;
var currency = this.Price.currencyCode;
var newPrice;
var pieces = this.OrigQty.content;

newPrice = origPrice * pieces;

this.NPrice.currencyCode = currency;
this.NPrice.content = newPrice;

So my result looks like this:

I hope this helps
