The java.math.BigDecimal.round(MathContext mc) returns a BigDecimal rounded according to the MathContext settings. If the precision setting is 0 then no rounding takes place.The effect of this method is identical to that of the plus(MathContext) method.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigDecimal.round() method.

public BigDecimal round(MathContext mc)

Parameters

mc − The context to use.

Return Value

This method returns a BigDecimal rounded according to the MathContext settings.

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigDecimal.round() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigDecimalDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 2 BigDecimal Objects
      BigDecimal bg1, bg2;

      bg1 = new BigDecimal("5.46497");

      MathContext mc = new MathContext(3); // 3 precision

      // bg1 is rounded using mc
      bg2 = bg1.round(mc);

      String str = "The value " + bg1 + " after rounding is " + bg2;

      // print bg2 value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

The value 5.46497 after rounding is 5.46
