# Java bigdecimal movePointLeft example

Example below demonstrates bigdecimal class movePointLeft method example. Method returns a bigdecimal object value. Method moves the decimal point also called dot operator(.) towards left side of the number. To how many digits this shifting will done, will depend on the integer number passed inside the parentheses of the method.

In the example two bigdecimal objects are created and assigned integer as well double type values.
In case of integer values shifting starts from the last.number.
Method throws NumberFormatException if it finds value other integer & double.

Syntax for using the method : public BigDecimal movePointLeft(int n)
BigDecimal objects with names x & y;
y = x.movePointLeft(n);

Note : Integer variable n decides the number up to which shifting of the dot operator towards left, will take place.
