Class Decimal
dw.util.Decimal
The Decimal class is a helper class to perform decimal arithmetic in scripts and to represent a decimal number with arbitray length. The decimal class avoids arithmetic errors, which are typical for calculating with floating numbers, that are based on a binary mantissa. The class is designed in a way that it can be used very similar to a desktop calculator. ``` var d = new Decimal( 10.0 ); var result = d.add( 2.0 ).sub( 3.0 ).get(); ``` The above code will return 9 as result.

Parameters:
value - the value to multiply with this decimal.
Returns:
the new decimal.

multiply

Multiples the specified Decimal value with this Decimal and returns the new Decimal.
Parameters:
value - the value to multiply with this decimal.
Returns:
the new decimal.

negate
negate() : Decimal
Returns a new Decimal with the negated value of this Decimal.
Returns:
the new Decimal

round
round(decimals : Number) : Decimal
Rounds the current value of the decimal using the specified number of decimals. The parameter specifies the number of digest after the decimal point.
Parameters:
decimals - the number of decimals to use.
Returns:
the decimal that has been rounded.

toString
toString() : String
Returns a string representation of this object.
Returns:
a string representation of this object.

valueOf
valueOf() : Object
The valueOf() method is called by the ECMAScript interpret to return the "natural" value of an object. The Decimal object returns its current value as number. With this behavior script snippets can be written like: ``` var d = new Decimal( 10.0 ); var x = 1.0 + d.add( 2.0 ); ``` where x will be at the end 13.0.
Returns:
the value of this object.
