# Number to fixed-point notation without trailing zeros

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) =>
`${Number.parseFloat(num.toFixed(digits))}`;
```

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