## BigDecimal Class scaleByPowerOfTen() method

• scaleByPowerOfTen() method is available in java.math package.
• scaleByPowerOfTen() method is used to get a BigDecimal whose value is calculated by using [(this BigDecimal) * 10 pow(number)].
• scaleByPowerOfTen() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
• scaleByPowerOfTen() method may throw an exception at the time of scaling by the power of 10.
ArithmeticException: This exception may throw when the scale value is not in a range.

Syntax:

```    public BigDecimal scaleByPowerOfTen(int number);
```

Parameter(s):

• int number – represents the number raised to the power of 10 * (this BigDecimal) to calculated BigDecimal.

Return value:

The return type of this method is BigDecimal, it returns the BigDecimal object whose value is calculated by using (10 pow[number] * [this BigDecimal]).

Example:

```// Java program to demonstrate the example
// of BigDecimal scaleByPowerOfTen(int number) method of BigDecimal

import java.math.*;

public class ScaleByPowerOfTenOfBD {
public static void main(String args[]) {
// Initialize two variables of int and
// String type
int val = 3524;
String str = "100.123";

// Initialize two BigDecimal objects
BigDecimal b_dec1 = new BigDecimal(val);
BigDecimal b_dec2 = new BigDecimal(str);

// returns the BigDecimal that holds the value
// of this BigDecimal b_dec1 is multiplied by
// 10 raised to the power of the given int "2"
BigDecimal bd = b_dec1.scaleByPowerOfTen(2);
System.out.println("b_dec1.scaleByPowerOfTen(2): " + bd);

// returns the BigDecimal that holds the value
// of this BigDecimal b_dec2 is multiplied by
// 10 raised to the power of given int "3"
bd = b_dec2.scaleByPowerOfTen(3);
System.out.println("b_dec2.scaleByPowerOfTen(3): " + bd);
}
}
```

Output

```b_dec1.scaleByPowerOfTen(2): 3.524E+5
b_dec2.scaleByPowerOfTen(3): 100123
```
