    Default Re: Formatting output of a Double

    There are two ways to do this. The "easier" method is to use the printf() method for displaying output.

    double myNumber = 1234.56789;
    System.out.printf("My number to two decimal places: %.2f",myNumber);
    System.out.printf("My number to three decimal places: %.3f",myNumber);
