Example below demonstrates bigdecimal class movePointRight method example. Method returns a bigdecimal object value. Method moves the decimal point also called dot operator(.) towards right side of the number. To how many digits this shifting will done, will depend on the integer number passed inside the parentheses of the method. In the example one bigdecimal object deadly is made and assigned integer as well double type values.
In case of integers, n number zeroes are get attached with the number.
Method throws NumberFormatException if it finds value other integer & double.
Syntax for using the method : public BigDecimal movePointRight(int n)
BigDecimal objects with names x & y;
y = x.movePointRight(n);
Note : Integer variable n decides the number up to which shifting of the dot operator towards Right, will take place.
