# Java.math.BigDecimal.stripTrailingZeros() Method

## Description

The java.math.BigDecimal.stripTrailingZeros() returns a BigDecimal which is numerically equal to this one but with any trailing zeros removed from the representation.

For example, stripping the trailing zeros from the BigDecimal value 600.0, which has [BigInteger, scale] components equals to [6000, 1], yields 6E2 with [BigInteger, scale] components equals to [6, -2].

## Declaration

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

```public BigDecimal stripTrailingZeros()
```

NA

## Return Value

This method returns a numerically equal BigDecimal with any trailing zeros removed.

NA

## Example

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

```package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigDecimalDemo {

public static void main(String[] args) {

// create 4 BigDecimal objects
BigDecimal bg1, bg2, bg3, bg4;

bg1 = new BigDecimal("235.000");
bg2 = new BigDecimal("23500");

// assign the result of stripTrailingZeros method to bg3, bg4
bg3 = bg1.stripTrailingZeros();
bg4 = bg2.stripTrailingZeros();

String str1 = bg1 + " after removing trailing zeros " +bg3;
String str2 = bg2 + " after removing trailing zeros " +bg4;

// print bg3, bg4 values
System.out.println( str1 );
System.out.println( str2 );
}
}
```

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

```235.000 after removing trailing zeros 235
23500 after removing trailing zeros 2.35E+4
```
