    Default Help with Printf statement

    I need help formatting a printf() statement. If I wanted to print out the following division to three decimal places....

    int a=40500;
    int b=2900;
    System.out.printf( ?, a/b);

    What would I need to put in place of the ? to make it work?

    Take a look at the API doc for the class Formatter:
    Java Platform SE 7
    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs...Formatter.html
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
