# divide number with decimals javascript

how can I divide number (money) to x number equally the number could be with one or two decimal or without it

such as `1000` or `100.2` or `112.34`
I want to be able to split that number into x part all of them equally, however if it’s not odd number the extra number to the last one.

for example

```3856 / 3
1285.33
1285.33
1285.34
```

Sounds like a pretty straightforward loop/recursion.

Here you go

```function divideEvenly(numerator, minPartSize) {
if(numerator / minPartSize< 2) {
return [numerator];
}
return [minPartSize].concat(divideEvenly(numerator-minPartSize, minPartSize));
}

console.log(divideEvenly(1000, 333));
```

To get it to be two decimals of currency multiply both numbers by 100 before calling this function then divide each result by 100 and call `toFixed(2)`.

Like so

```function divideCurrencyEvenly(numerator, divisor) {
var minPartSize = +(numerator / divisor).toFixed(2)
return divideEvenly(numerator*100, minPartSize*100).map(function(v) {
return (v/100).toFixed(2);
});
}

console.log(divideCurrencyEvenly(3856, 3));
//=>["1285.33", "1285.33", "1285.34"]
```
