Default Decimal issue for percentage x currency /100

I cannot figure out why my decimal is being messed with for the following mail merge math:
5.375% x $8,213.28 = $441.46 (is what the correct match should be)

My merge fields a
{ Mergefield Interest Rate } x { Mergefield Balance } =
{= { Mergefield Interest Rate } x { Mergefield Balance }/100 \# "$,0.0x"}

the merge results this gives:
5.375% x $8,213.28 = $4.41

as you can see my merge field codes are accurate
5.375% is accurate
$8,213.28 is accurate
but my match operation is messing with the correct result.

I have tried so many different \# mail merge numeric picture switches
I've also rearranged the math operations also enclosing in parenthesis at times, always the same result.

This site being invaluable but I have not been able to solve my problem.
