Do you mean 25.56?
Take a peek at the DecimalFormat class.

Isn't it nice when someone actually reads the question asked? I had it in my mind that you were asking how to display. Follow Ilja's lead on learning about what is going on with the numbers and then when you'd like to display them, take a look at the aforementioned class.
Good Luck.

Hi I modified the code to reflect what you want.
