For BigInteger.divide I am getting 2.
I need fraction value also.

843789 Jul 29, 2010 6:17 AM (in response to 843789)Integers give you whole numbers(2), not values (2.5)
Therefore you should look into doubles/floats etc.

843789 Jul 29, 2010 6:22 AM (in response to 843789)Read the documentation of BigInteger. It can only represent whole numbers.
If you want fractions, you'll have to use BigDecimal.

Maybe you should be using BigDecimal ... or even, as suggested, doubles / floats.
