MathContext toString() Method in Java
  • Last Updated : 20 Jun, 2018

The java.math.MathContext.toString() function is an in-built function in Java which returns the string representation of a MathContext object’s context settings.

The string returned represents the settings of the MathContext object as two space-separated words. These two space-separated strings are as follows :

  • The first part of the returned string displays the value of the precision settings preceded by string “precision=”
  • The second part of the returned string displays the value of the RoundingMode settings preceded by string “roundingMode=”

Syntax :

public String toString()

Parameter: The method accepts no parameter.

Return Values: This method returns a string representing the context settings of the object of the MathContext class in the format mentioned above.



Examples:

Input : m1 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_DOWN)
Output : precision=2 roundingMode=HALF_DOWN

Input : m1 = new MathContext(60)
Output : precision=60 roundingMode=HALF_UP

Below programs illustrates the use of java.math.MathContext.toString() function :
Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate toString() method
import java.math.*;
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // creating a MathContext object
        MathContext m1;
  
        // assign context settings to m1
        m1 = new MathContext(37, RoundingMode.HALF_DOWN);
  
        System.out.println(m1.toString());
    }
}
Output:
precision=37 roundingMode=HALF_DOWN

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate toString() method
import java.math.*;
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating a MathContext object
        MathContext m1;
  
        // Assign context settings to m1
        m1 = new MathContext(60);
  
        System.out.println(m1.toString());
    }
}
Output:
precision=60 roundingMode=HALF_UP
