Jason Dere created HIVE-15334:
Summary: HIVE-13945 changed scale rules for division
Issue Type: Bug
Reporter: Jason Dere
Looks like HIVE-13945 change the decimal division precision/scale rules - the
explanation being "Changed the default decimal precision in division, not sure
why it was so low by default."
As far as I can tell this causes decimal division to have a minimum scale of 18.
cc [~sershe] - the rules that were in place were based on the SQL Server
precision/scale rules in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190476.aspx
I'd like to revert this change to precision/scale rules
