# Python: Round a floating-point number to specified number

## Python Basic: Exercise-119 with Solution

Write a Python program to round a floating-point number to a specified number of decimal places.

Sample Solution:

Round to specified Decimals using %f Function:

Python Code:

# Define the order amount as a floating-point number.
order_amt = 212.374

# Print the total order amount with 6 decimal places.
print('\nThe total order amount comes to %f' % order_amt)

# Print the total order amount with 2 decimal places using string formatting.
print('The total order amount comes to %.2f' % order_amt)

# Print a blank line for formatting.
print()

Sample Output:

The total order amount comes to 212.374000
The total order amount comes to 212.37

Python Code:

# Define the order amount as a floating-point number.
order_amt = 212.374

# Print the total order amount with 6 decimal places using format.
print("\nThe total order amount comes to {:0.6f}".format(order_amt))

# Print the total order amount with 2 decimal places using format.
print("\nThe total order amount comes to {:0.2f}".format(order_amt))
