Hello All I am working on a calculator project and am trying to format the results of my calculations so that it displays just like the Windows calculator, eg. 99999999999999999999999999999999 * 9 should be = 8.9999999999999999999999999999999e+32. My calculations are done using BigDecimal (for precision reasons) and my result needs to be a String (for display). Can anyone please tell me how I can format the results of the following calculation: BigDecimal num1=new java.math.BigDecimal("99999999999999999999999999999999"); BigDecimal num2=new java.math.BigDecimal("9"); BigDecimal numRes=new java.math.BigDecimal("0"); numRes = num1.multiply(num2); After the calculation i need the result in a String. Thanks!
