Python Question

I always want to separate the last two digits with a decimal point . (dot)L

`print("{:.2f}".format(300));`

Output:

`300.00`

Expected output:

`3.00`

Next

`print("{:.2f}".format(333333300));`

Output:

`333333300.00`

Expected output:

`3333333.00`

How can I change my code so that I get the expected output instead?

Answer

`300.00`

is a representation of number `300`

. `3.00`

is a representation of number `3`

. Those are two different values. There is no way Python will represent `300`

as `3`

.

Assuming you really want to print `3.00`

(which for pretty much everyone around means `3`

, not `300`

), then you should divide `300`

by `100`

.

```
print("{:.2f}".format(300/100.0))
```
