Below is the implementation of the above function:

Program 1:

import java.util.Locale;
  
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args)

        // Create the DecimalFormat Instance
        DecimalFormat deciFormat = new DecimalFormat();
  
        deciFormat.setMultiplier(10);
  
        System.out.println(deciFormat.format(1234.345));
    }
}
Output:
12, 343.45

Program 2:
