Hi there,

I've looked at a few functions in php but when it comes to decimal places they seem to add the decimal to the end.
Here I want to add the decimal before the last two numbers in a string.

So

15000 = 150.00
1234 = 12.34
8650 = 86.50
etc.

How can I do this with php?

Could you not just divide by 100?

Yes that would be right :p ....  Was looking at it the wrong way.

Ok here it is

$number = 1500000000 ;
$price = $number / 100 ;
$price = number_format($price, 2, '.', ',');
echo $price ;
