JavaScript, Math, String · May 10, 2022

Formats a number using fixed-point notation, if it has decimals.

  • Use Number.prototype.toFixed() to convert the number to a fixed-point notation string.
  • Use Number.parseFloat() to convert the fixed-point notation string to a number, removing trailing zeros.
  • Use a template literal to convert the number to a string.
const toOptionalFixed = (num, digits) =>

toOptionalFixed(1, 2); // '1'
toOptionalFixed(1.001, 2); // '1'
toOptionalFixed(1.500, 2); // '1.5'
