In this tutorial, we will more about how to parse the float with 2 decimals in JavaScript.

## Parse Float with 2 Decimals in JavaScript

To parse float with 2 decimal places:

- First, use the
`toFixed(`

) method to specify the number of decimal places you want to round the number to. This method rounds the number to the nearest decimal place and Also`toFixed()`

will return the result as a string. - toFixed() method rounds the number up or down, depending on the next decimal place. If you want to always round down, you can use the
`Math.floor()`

or round up you can use`Math.ceil()`

- Finally, to convert the parsed number back to a number and not a string, use the
`parseFloat()`

, this will convert the string to float.

let us see parse float with 2 decimals by example.

First, assign a value that holds the floating point number which we want to parse.

`let num = 6.16659265;`

Then use `toFixed() a `

method like below also mentions the number of decimal places we want to round the number for example in the below case I have mentioned 2 decimal places.

`let parsedNum = num.toFixed(2);`

The toFixed() method rounds the number up or down, depending on the next decimal place. If we want to always round down, we can use the `Math.floor()`

function. if you want nearest integer please use Math.round() function see the last example.

`let parsedNum = Math.floor(num * 100) / 100;`

If we want to always round up, we can use the `Math.ceil()`

function.

`let parsedNum = Math.ceil(num * 100) / 100;`

Finally, If we need to convert the parsed number to a string, use` `

the` parseFloat() `

else you can you the value from the last step directly, like` the `

below example.

`let finalNumber = parseFloat(parsedNum);`

Also, we can use the` Math.round()`

function to method returns the value of a number rounded to the nearest integer.

`let parsedNum = Math.round(num * 100) / 100;`
