BigDecimal round() Method in Java

The java.math.BigDecimal.round(MathContext m) is an inbuilt method in Java that returns a BigDecimal value rounded according to the MathContext settings. If the precision setting is 0 then no rounding takes place.

Syntax:

public BigDecimal round(MathContext m)

Parameters: The method accepts a single parameter m which refers to the context to use that is the value up to which the BigDecimal value is to be rounded off.



Return value: This method returns a BigDecimal rounded according to the MathContext settings.

        MathContext m = new MathContext(4); // 4 precision
  
        // b1 is rounded using m
        BigDecimal b2 = b1.round(m);
  
        // Print b2 value
        System.out.println("The value of " + b1 + 
        " after rounding is " + b2);
    }
}
