At URL below, I want to round the answer to 2 decimal places.

Is this possible?

Thanks, April

Here's how I do:
i *= 100;
i = Math.round(i);
i /= 100;

Maybe there's some better way? I have no idea.

martinag, why didn't you answer this one?  You provided a correct answer!
Of course those three statements can be conbined into one:
i= Math.round(i*100) / 100;

It's the only way that I have seen!
It's actually pretty simple as it is.  They probably figured it wasn't worth implementing a number of decimal places since it's so easy to get around it.

I'm sure my question was understood.  I have a formula that returns a value like
4.44444444444
and I want it to return
4.44

How does the formula accomplish this?

jbirkCommented:
It translates 4.44444444444 to 444.444444444 by multiplying it by 100.  Then it rounds it normally to the nearest integer: 444, and then it divides by 100: 4.44

Thanks again Josh.

I really appreciate the extra explanation.

Note:
55.5555 * 100 = 5555.55

Math.round(5555.55) returns 5556
5556 / 100 = 55.56

Math.round() rounds down if the first decimal is 4 or below, up if it is five or higher.
