How to convert String to float with exact decimal value

When I convert a
value to float by using Float.valueOf(String), The return value is not containing last decimal.
Ex: String a = 2.50;
float b = Float.valueOf(a);
Now the float "b" is holding only upto 2.5. It is not converting String value to float properly. My requirement is to convert a String value to Float with exact decimals.
Please tell me how can I convert a String to float with complete decimals.

The primitive types don't store trailing 0s. Agree with Rob P.
I agree. Here's the link:
