    Default Re: Printing out to two decimal places

    Look at the API doc for the Formatter class. It shows how to code a format String that can be used with the printf method to control the number of decimal places.

    Copying and pasting code or the contents of a console window here is better that using images which are often hard to read and don't allow copying of its contents to include in a response.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
