Java programming Exercises: Count the number of decimal places in a given number

Java Regular Expression: Exercise-17 with Solution

Write a Java program to count the number of decimal places in a given number.

Sample Solution-1:

Java Code:

public class test {
 
   public static void main(String[] args) {	   
	   String n = "123";
	   System.out.println("Original Number: "+n);
	   System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
	   n = "112.3";
    	   System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
	   System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
	   n = "112.03";
    	  System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
	  System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
	  n = "112.233";
    	 System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
	 System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
        }

   public static Integer validate(String n) {
	   	if(n.contains("."))
			return n.replaceAll(".*\\.(?=\\d?)", "").length();
		return 0;
  }
}

Sample Output:

Original Number: 123
Number of decimal places in the said number: 0

Original Number: 112.3
Number of decimal places in the said number: 1

Original Number: 112.03
Number of decimal places in the said number: 2

Original Number: 112.233
Number of decimal places in the said number: 3

Sample Solution-2:

Java Code:

public class test {
 
   public static void main(String[] args) {	   
	    String n = "123";
		System.out.println("Original Number: "+n);
		System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
		n = "112.3";
    	System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
		System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
		n = "112.03";
    	System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
		System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
		n = "112.233";
    	System.out.println("\nOriginal Number: "+n);
		System.out.println("Number of decimal places in the said number: "+validate(n));
        }

   public static Integer validate(String n) {
	   	int ctr = n.indexOf(".");
		return ctr > 0 ? n.length() - ctr - 1 : 0;
  }
}

Sample Output:

Original Number: 123
Number of decimal places in the said number: 0

Original Number: 112.3
Number of decimal places in the said number: 1

Original Number: 112.03
Number of decimal places in the said number: 2

Original Number: 112.233
Number of decimal places in the said number: 3

Java: Tips of the Day

Split Java String by New Line

String lines[] = string.split("\\r?\\n");

There's only really two newlines (UNIX and Windows) that you need to worry about.
