I have a table1 that saves the duration for a trip. table1 contains the following columns:
hourStart
hourEnd
minuteStart
minuteEnd

To calculate the duration of the trip, I am using the following query:
select ((hourEnd-hourStart) + ((cast((minuteEnd-minuteStart) as decimal))/60)) as trip  from table1

This works, except the results have too many zero's at the end:
1.500000

I want to format this as followed:
1.50

Is there a way to decrease the decimal places (or remove the extra zero's at the end)?
