Then you're going to need to show your code. The function I linked to, if used properly, will format the number for display how you want it.

ok maybe there is a way but I didn't pay attention. anyway
My code result is like this

//suppose $number1=5 and $number2=3
$result = $number1/ $number2;
echo $result; //will print 1.666666666 but i want it to print just 1 number after the decimal point

Well, no advise is going to solve your problem if you don't "pay attention", or as your code above show, didn't try it.

I didnt find anything that suit my case, the number_format() as i can see its just count from right to left
Excuse me, im a new coder .

$number1 = 5;
$number2 = 3;
$result = round($number1/$number2,1);
print $result;

Is that what you're looking for?

Yes , thats exactly what I want.
Thank you

For future reference that was the round() function it can be used:

round($string, 'decimal_places');



$string = "7.938";
$string = round($string, '2');


Output: 7.94
