# How to use division in JavaScript

JavascriptDivision## Javascript Problem Overview

I want to divide a number in JavaScript and it would return a decimal value.

For example: `737/1070`

- I want JavaScript to return `0.68`

; however it keeps rounding it off and return it as `0`

.

How do I set it to return me either two decimals place or the full results?

## Javascript Solutions

## Solution 1 - Javascript

Make one of those numbers a float.

```
737/parseFloat(1070)
```

or a bit faster:

```
737*1.0/1070
```

convert to 2 decimal places

```
Math.round(737 * 100.0 / 1070) / 100
```

## Solution 2 - Javascript

`(737/1070).toFixed(2);`

rounds the result to 2 decimals and returns it as a string. In this case the rounded result is `0.69`

by the way, not `0.68`

. If you need a real float rounded to 2 decimals from your division, use `parseFloat((737/1070).toFixed(2))`

## Solution 3 - Javascript

Also you can to use `[.toPrecision(n)]`

, where `n`

is (*total*) the number of digits. So `(23.467543).toPrecision(4)`

=> `23.47`

or `(1241876.2341).toPrecision(8)`

=> `1241876.2`

.

## Solution 4 - Javascript

Try this

```
let ans = 737/1070;
console.log(ans.toFixed(2));
```

toFixed() function will do

## Solution 5 - Javascript

to get it to 2 decimal places you can: `alert( Math.round( 737 / 1070 * 100) / 100 )`

## Solution 6 - Javascript

with lodash:

```
const _ = require("lodash");
```

Use of _.divide() method

```
let gfg = _.divide(12, 5);
```

Printing the output

```
console.log(gfg)
2.4
```
