Interesting. Thanks Rolf!

What about eval? Why it got right evaluated?

    eval expects a string, so the number is converted to a string, and the stringification rounds a tiny bit, so it accidentally produces the right result.

      You can prepend a q before the ( to make eval work correctly, i.e. report the difference.
      $premium = eval q($number * ( 1 + 10/100 ));
