# how do I retain the the zero at the end when I divide a number like 12330 by 100 in Javascript

how do I divide `12330 by 100` to give me `123.30`

trying 12330/100 in JS gives `123.3` but I want the 0 at the end to stay

also, I need the function to not give .00

so 100/100 should give `1` and not `1.00`

tried using `.toFixed(2)`. but it only solved the first case and not the second.

### >Solution :

``````console.log(
(12330 / 100).toFixed(2)
);``````

here `2` means, the precision of float

Attention: also when the number isn’t a float it will do `number.00` (in the most of cases this is good behavior)

but if isn’t good for you, see the next edited answer…

if the `.00` gives you problems, use this:

``````function convert(value) {
if (value % 1 === 0) {
return value;
}

return value.toFixed(2);
}

// tests

console.log(convert(12330 / 100)); // should return value with toFixed

console.log(convert(100 / 100)); // should return 1 (no toFixed)

console.log(convert(100 / 10)); // should return 10 (no toFixed)``````
