## How to convert exponential format to Decimal number format in Java?

When we work (like multiplication or division) on long and double formats, most of the times we come across exponential form. We offen need it to be converted to decimal form. We can convert exponential form to decimal using class java.math.BigDecimal. We can use BigDecimal.valueOf() to convert the Double value to BigDecimal format and then we can call .toPlainString() to convert it into plain decimal string. Also sometimes as we convert exponential form to decimal , decimal strings can be big, we can trim this using java.text.DecimalFormat as shown in following example.

Double a = 7.77d * 100000000;//Multiply Operation System.out.println("Large multiply " + a.doubleValue()); System.out.println("Magic of big decimal " + BigDecimal.valueOf(a).toPlainString()); a = 7.77d / 100000;//Devide Operation System.out.println("Devide operation " + a.doubleValue()); System.out.println("Magic of big decimal " + BigDecimal.valueOf(a).toPlainString()); DecimalFormat formatter = new DecimalFormat("0.000000"); System.out.println("Trimming the big string : "+formatter .format(a));

Output :

Large multiply 7.77E8

Magic of big decimal 777000000

Devide operation 7.769999999999999E-5

Magic of big decimal 0.00007769999999999999

Trimming the big string : 0.000078
