    Digital Bathroom Scale Question
    ajk_1962f posted:
    About a year ago, I bought my first digital bathroom scale (the brand is Taylor, if that means anything). It's helped me a great deal. But I just realized that when it shows my weight (to one decimal place), the decimal is always an even number, such as 121.2 or 121.4. It's never 121.3 or 121.5, for example.

    Is this normal for digital scales? If it is, how can they truly be accurate? I know that a couple of ounces isn't a big deal, but I'd still like some clarity on the matter.
