# Round

This chapter illustrates three functions to **round** numbers in **Excel**. The ROUND, **ROUNDUP** and **ROUNDDOWN** function.

Before your start: if you round a number, you lose precision. If you don't want this, show fewer decimal places without changing the number itself.

### Round

1. Round a number to two decimal places.

Note: 1, 2, 3, and 4 get rounded down. 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 get rounded up. In this example, 114.72__1__1, 114.72__2__1, 114.72__3__1 and 114.72__4__1 get rounded down to 114.72 and 114.72__5__1, 114.72__6__1, 114.72__7__1, 114.72__8__1 and 114.72__9__1 get rounded up to 114.73.

2. Round a number to one decimal place.

3. Round a number to the nearest integer.

4. Round a number to the nearest 10.

5. Round a number to the nearest 100.

### RoundUp

The ROUNDUP function always rounds a number up (away from zero). For example, round a number up to one decimal place.

### RoundDown

The ROUNDDOWN function always rounds a number down (toward zero). For example, round a number down to the nearest integer.
