The round function in Excel is used to round off the decimal values used for both roundings off the decimal numbers irrespective of the number of digits they have after the decimal and for choosing to what limit we want to see the numbers after the decimal. For this, select the decimal number we want to round off, then choose the number of digits after the decimal.

- For rounding a number to the nearest 100, pass -2 in place of the second argument.
- For rounding a number to the nearest 10, pass -1 in place of the second argument.

If you want to round a number in a simpler way, you can use the ROUND Function with the specified number of digits.

#### Example #3

From the below-given data, extract the round values.

### Things to Remember

- Round Function rounds a number 1-4 down and 5-9 up by rounding numbers.
- This Function rounds numbers to a specified level of precision. It rounds to the left or left of the decimal point.
- If the second argument num_digits is greater than 0, then the given number is rounded to the right of the decimal point.
- When the the second argument num_digits less than 0, the given number is rounded to the left of the decimal point.
- If num_digits = 0, a number is rounded to the nearest integer.
- Always round up away from Zero; use the ROUNDUP Function.
- To always round down towards Zero, use ROUNDDOWN Function.
- To round a number to a specific multiple of a digit, use the MROUND Function.
