Rounding Numbers in Excel

Rounding numbers in Excel is a common task that many users need to perform. There are a few different ways to round numbers in Excel, and the method you use will depend on your specific needs. In this article, we'll cover how to round numbers to the nearest integer, how to round numbers up or down, how to round numbers to a certain number of decimal places, and how to use the ROUND function in Excel.

How to Round Numbers to the Nearest Integer

If you want to round a number to the nearest integer, you can use the ROUND function. The ROUND function takes two arguments: the number you want to round and the number of digits you want to round to. For example, if you want to round the number 12.3456 to the nearest integer, you would use the following formula:

=ROUND(12.3456, 0)

The first argument is the number you want to round (12.3456 in this case). The second argument is the number of digits you want to round to (0 in this case). You can also use negative numbers for the second argument. For example, if you want to round 12.3456 to the nearest 10th, you would use this formula:

=ROUND(12.3456, -1)

How to Round Numbers Up or Down

If you want to always round a number up or down, regardless of its value, you can use the CEILING or FLOOR functions. The CEILING function rounds a number up to the nearest integer multiple of another number. For example, if you want to round 12.3456 up to the nearest 10th, you would use this formula:

=CEILING(12.3456, 10)

The first argument is the number you want to round (12.3456 in this case). The second argument is the multiple of which you want to round up (10 in this case).

The FLOOR function rounds a number down to the nearest integer multiple of another number. For example, if you want 12.3456 down
