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

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 first have to decide what accuracy, that is how many decimals, are needed in the answer. There is a rule of thumb which says you should not quote more decimals than the accuracy of the data used in the calculation. Money calcs of course would usually use just 2 decimals.

So when dropping decimals round up the last remaining of the dropped decimal is 5 or over, otherwise it is unaltered. So 2.2361 rounded off to 3 dec is 2.236, and rounded to 2 dec it is 2.24.

Hi Carol,

There are switches at the top just under the screen called the "Rounding Switch" and the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

With the rounding switch you can select rounding up or down, but you may also want to use the second switch to show more digits after the decimal. Put it in the "F" position to show all decimal places. When it is in the 0, 1, 2 positions, it strips off and round the numbers.

Here is the link to the manual as well, look at the section detailing the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

(You will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader to look at the manual.)

Hope this will help you. http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/software/calculator/P23-DHV-(USA-HWB).pdf

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.

Set the display to 2 decimal places then use the [RND] function. See how the manual describes the Round operation.

Brief example:

01- 42 2 [f][2]

02- 42 14 [f][RND]

03- 42 9 [f][9]

The above program takes the number displayed and rounds to 2 decimal places (nearest 100th), then displays all decimal places.

If you entered 2.876 and ran the program, it would display 2.880000000.

I don't think the calculator has that function, but what you can do is round on your own. If the decimal .005 or greater, you'd round it up to .01. Simple as that!

Hope this helped.

CUT: Values are cut off to the number of decimal places speicified by the current Decimal Place Selector setting

UP: Values are rounded up to the number of decimal places speicified by the current Decimal Place Selector setting

5/4: Values are rounded off (0,1,2,3,4 are cut off; 5,6,7,8,9 are rounded up) to the number of decimal places speicified by the current Decimal Place Selector setting

To do this you need to set your calculator to a fixed decimal value. You can do this by Pressing 2nd + FIX (decimal point) and then setting it to 0 decimal places. This will round a number to the nearest whole number.

Hope that helps.

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
