i want to update price such that it conforms to the NumberOfDecimals present.

ie. if NumberOfDecimals == 2 then price = 27.99

quick question on this, if var price =2900 or var price =3040 your solution doesn't take into account the trailing zeros.
instead it outputs 29 and 30.4
I'd like 29.00 and 30.40

how can i do that?
