there is nothing wrong with the numbers

39906684928 / 1024^3 = 37.170 GB

ya plus to HD makers they rip you off by saying that 1gb = 1000mb so they are off by 24mb per GB and that results in a rip-off

[Advertised] * .93 (usable ratio) = [Actual Display Size]
250,048,479,323 byte
take the billionth value, which is 250 in this case.
250 * .93 = 232.5

There's nothing wrong with it. It has to do with the binary GB and the decimal GB.
