It certainly is.

>From the floor and the rest of your message, it looks like you want
truncating integer division here.  So, instead of floor and (/), use

    let f (a,b) = a * 100000 `div` b

With that change the rest of your program should work.

The other replies explain why the interpreter couldn't figure out which
type to use.
