# How to truncate/round-off decimal numbers?

*From*: "Girish Sahani" <girish@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>*Date*: Tue, 20 Jun 2006 14:44:53 +0530 (IST)

Hi,

I want to truncate every number to 2 digits after the decimal point. I

tried the following but it doesnt work.

0.67000000000000004a = 2

b = 3

round(a*1.0 / b,2)

Inspite of specifying 2 in 2nd attribute of round, it outputs all the

digits after decimal.

.
