How do you subtract BigDecimal?
Also know, how do I use BigDecimal?
Using a BigDecimal implies that you should:
- Create new BigDecimal variables, using the constructor.
- In order to add a BigDecimal to another BigDecimal, use add(BigDecimal augend) API method, that returns a BigDecimal whose value is (this + augend), and whose scale is max(this.
Additionally, how do you split BigDecimal? BigDecimal. divide(BigDecimal divisor, int scale, RoundingMode roundingMode) returns a BigDecimal whose value is (this / divisor), and whose scale is as specified. If rounding must be performed to generate a result with the specified scale, the specified rounding mode is applied.
Similarly, it is asked, can BigDecimal be negative?
A BigDecimal consists of an arbitrary precision integer unscaled value and a 32-bit integer scale. If zero or positive, the scale is the number of digits to the right of the decimal point. If negative, the unscaled value of the number is multiplied by ten to the power of the negation of the scale.
What is the difference between BigDecimal and double?
They are very different. Besides the difference in precision, the most important difference is that BigDecimal is a specifically decimal type. That means it's designed to represent fractions with finite-length decimal (base-10) representations. On the other hand, double is a base-2 floating-point number.
