    Math Help

    Hey all,


    I was wondering when you come up with a addition or subtraction of numbers with a decimal how you can get the zero or zeros to show up.

    eg.. instead of 139.9

    I would like to see 139.90

    or instead of 300.

    I would like to see 300.00

    Hope ya understand..

    Thanks in advance.

    Use a print formatter:
    PHP Code:
    printf("%0.2f"139.9); 
    If its for monies, then using money_format would be better if you have it available since its locale aware. No matter the case, having 139.90 instead of 139.9 is the difference between (string)139.90 and (double)139.9.
