Do you want 2 decimal places? If so:
        public double findPoint2() {
                if ((a == 0) && (b == 0)) //return z
                 {
                        t = -d / c;
 
                        System.out.printf("z is %.2f  n", t);
 
                        return (t);
                } else if ((a == 0) && (c == 0)) //return y
                 {
                        t = -d / b;
                        System.out.printf("y is %.2f  n", t);
 
                        return (t);
                } else //if( b == 0 && c ==0 )  // return x
                 {
                        t = -d / a;
                        System.out.printf("x is %.2f  n", t);
 
                        return (t);
                }
        }
