BigDecimal stripTrailingZeros() Method in Java

The java.math.BigDecimal.stripTrailingZeros() is an inbuilt method in Java that returns a BigDecimal which is numerically equal to this one but with any trailing zeros removed from the representation. So basically the function trims off the trailing zero from the BigDecimal value.

Syntax:

public BigDecimal stripTrailingZeros()

Parameter: This method does not accepts any parameter.



Return value: This method returns a numerical value equal to the BigDecimal with all the trailing zeros being removed.

Examples:

Input: 785.000
Output: 785

Input: 125500000
Output: 1.255E+8

    {
  
        BigDecimal b1 = new BigDecimal("785.000");
        BigDecimal b2 = new BigDecimal("125500");
  
        // Assigning the result of stripTrailingZeros method
        // to BigDecimal objects b3, b4
        BigDecimal b3 = b1.stripTrailingZeros();
        BigDecimal b4 = b2.stripTrailingZeros();
  
        // print b3, b4 values
        System.out.println(b1 + " after removing trailing zeros " + b3);
        System.out.println(b2 + " after removing trailing zeros " + b4);
    }
}
