Huh?

To round off a number to 2 decimal places.... you would have to have a decimal. Your number of 3,150,000 implies 3,150,000.00

There is no rounding in this case. It is simply adding a decimal and two zeros after the decimal.

Semper Fi,

Z

You haven't made the purpose of the question very clear Miriam so I am only guessing that it is an exercise in rounding or shortening decimal fractions to make them easier to work with which is often convenient when approximations do not matter.

The general rule of rounding is to take the last figure and if it is less than 5 it is erased and if it is 5 or more it is erased but 1 is added to the next or the new last figure and the process is repeated until the fraction is shortened to the required length.

If you take the decimal fraction 0.8745, after the first stage of rounding it would become 0.875 and then after the second stage of rounding it would become 0.88 and then finally rounding to one decimal place the result would be 0.9.

I hope this helps you deal with your fraction. I apologise in advance if I have misunderstood the question.

You round a number with several decimal places to a number with fewer decimal places.

1.14 rounded to 1 decimal place 1.1

What you are asking for can be done by putting a zero after 4 and write 1.140, BUT that is not rounding. In fact you can put as many zeros after 4 as you want.

You need to select the number of decimal places you would like, or if you would like the calculator to behave as normal. Press SET UP and select FSE (press 1) . You now have 5 options.

0: FIX means you can choose a fixed number of decimal places for every calculation.

1: SCI means scientific notation and choose the number of significant values you would like to deal with.

2: ENG means engineering and the power goes up in multiples of 3.

3: NORM1 and 4: NORM2 are the usual or normal settings on the calculator. Most school calculations will use NORM1 mode.

The general rule for rounding of decimals and numers is as follows;

If the number is 1 to 4 inclusive then it rounds down to 0

if the number is 5 to 9 inclusive then it rounds up to 10 then carry the 1 along 1 place to the left

Take a look at the following link for more details and some examples

The function is called ROUND. It has 2 arguments, (1) the original number and (2) the number of decimal digits. Here is the Excel's help:
ROUND(number,num_digits)
The number you want to round.
• None.
num_digits The number of digits to which you want to round number.
• If num_digits is greater than 0 (zero), then number is rounded to the specified number of decimal places.
• If num_digits is 0, then number is rounded to the nearest integer.
• If num_digits is less than 0, then number is rounded to the left of the decimal point.

So for your case use this in a cell "=ROUND(12350*32.75%, 0)" without quotes, where I assume one or both numbers will come from other cells. -Ken
