I have a double number d = 15.33 .I want to do the below calculation.(ie) i want to seperate the whole number and the decimal part without using a splitter based on (.) to get the values.How can I do that??

e.g. 15.33 convert to 1520

Take decimal portion * 60 rounded. (0.33*60=20)

is what i want to perform? Please help.

Why do not you want a splitter based on (.) ?

Converting to text and splitting on the decimal point is both inefficient and subject to localisation issues (e.g. '.' versus ','). Using the Math library is the way to go, I think.

Look at Math.floor().

Compare and contrast to Math.ceil() and Math.round(), which have similar functionality, but subtle important differences.
