In order to round a number in Excel, we can use the ROUND function.
The function consists of two arguments: The number we want to round, and how many decimals we want the new number to contain.
So we’ll write Equals, ROUND, select the number we want to round, and then write how many decimal places we want, which in our case will be 2.
Note that 1, 2, 3, and 4 get rounded down, while 5 through 9 get rounded up.
We can change the second argument to any number, including zero, to get the nearest whole number… Or, for example, negative 1 to get the nearest ten… or negative 2 to get the nearest hundred.
In this lesson we have taken a look at the ROUND function, which rounds numbers according to a given amount of decimal places.
