```double A= 24.8, B= -92.777, C= 0.009, D= -0.123;
DecimalFormat numform = new DecimalFormat(" 00.00;-00.00");
System.out.println( "A = " + numform.format(A) );
System.out.println( "B = " + numform.format(B) );
System.out.println( "C = " + numform.format(C) );
System.out.println( "D = " + numform.format(D) );
```

```A =  24.80
B = -92.78
C =  00.01
D = -00.12
```

# Financial Numbers

In financial output, negative numbers are sometimes enclosed in `()` without a minus sign. Here is a fragment that does that:

```double firstQ= 456.78, secondQ= -23.06, thirdQ= 46.3, fourthQ= -102.45;

DecimalFormat numform = new DecimalFormat(" 000.00 ;(000.00)");

System.out.println( "First  Quarter = " + numform.format(firstQ) );
System.out.println( "Second Quarter = " + numform.format(secondQ) );
System.out.println( "Third  Quarter = " + numform.format(thirdQ) );
System.out.println( "Fourth Quarter = " + numform.format(fourthQ) );
```

The fragment outputs:

```First  Quarter =  456.78
Second Quarter = (023.06)
Third  Quarter =  046.30
Fourth Quarter = (102.45)
```

Notice that the number format pattern is the same in both subpatterns, `000.00`. The pattern for positive numbers includes two spaces to match the two parentheses output for negative numbers.

### QUESTION 14:

What does the following fragment write?

```double A= 0.1, B= -0.1;

DecimalFormat numform = new DecimalFormat(" 000.000;-000.000");

System.out.println( "A = " + numform.format(A) );
System.out.println( "B = " + numform.format(B) );
```
