 # Rounding calculator: Round the numbers up or down to any decimal place.

Rounding calculator is one of the best tools that help in rounding the numbers up or down to any decimal place. By using the rounding numbers calculator you can easily choose ones to round a number to the nearest dollar or round and amount to the nearest cent as well. It also depends upon the place value you want to round the number to.

## Some basic rules regarding rounding includes

While rounding the number to the nearest it is important for you to:
Identify that at which place value you are willing to round the number. The smaller the place value will be the chances of getting the accurate final result will become higher. Before rounding, must check the nearest smallest place value.
In case the digit in the next smallest place value is less than 5 then, leave it as it is. Any digit after that number will be zero. In case the smallest place value is more than 5 that is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 then just increase the rounding value by adding 1. this rule is applied on almost all the values that you want to round.

## What does rounding a number mean?

Physically, rounding number is a method in which a number gets replaced with an approximation value so that the results can become simpler and shorter as well. For example the number 2.7 can be round to 3. Methods of rounding there are different methods that are involved in the rounding procedure. the major methods are round half up, round half down, round up, round down, round half to even, round half to odd, round half away from 0, round half towards 0, round to the fractions. Let's understand each method in brief.

• Nearest Whole Number
• Nearest Tenth
• Nearest Hundredth
• Nearest Thousandth
• Nearest Ten Thousandths
• Nearest Hundred Thousandths
• Nearest Millionths
• Nearest Ten Millionths
• Nearest Hundred Millionth
• Nearest Billionths

## Standard Form

The standard form to represent the digits is:

 2 5 6 4 3 . 2 3 4 Ten Thousand Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones Decimal Point Tenths Hundredths Thousandths

## Round half up

It is the first method included in the rounding process.in this method, values that are half away between the two thousand rounding procedure gets grounded up. For example, when we apply the round half up method then
6.50 => 7
6.61 => 7
6.49 => 6
In case the value background is negative then the situation becomes quite confusing. Because sometimes the value -6.50 gets round to - 6 and sometimes -5. Hair the main motive is to bring the value towards more positive side.
-6.50 => -6
-6.51 => -7
-6.49 => -6

## Round half down

This method is quite similar to the rounding half up method. Rather than going up, the values that are halfway between the chosen rounding procedures gets down.
6.50 => 6
6.5 1 => 7
6.49 => 6
in case of the negative numbers the rounding will go up only. However, here also the situation is quite confusing. But the motive of this method is to lead the rounding value towards the smaller or more negative one.
-6.50 => -7
-6.51 => -7
-6.49 => -6

## Rounding up

This method is also known as taking the selling method. In this method, the main motive is to rounding up the numbers towards the nearest integers. For example while rounding any number to the ones place any non-integer value will be round towards the lowest integer that comes next.
6.99 => 6
When the situation turns and the digits become negative then the motive becomes quite different then it means rounding unknown integer negative numbers to the next positive integer that is also closest to. For example
-6.01 => - 6
-6.50 => - 6
-6.99 => -6

## Round down

This method is also known as taking the floor method and in this the number gets rounded to the nearest integer.
6.99 => 6
When the digits become negative then the rounding down gets done to the nearest more negative number.
-6.01 => - 7
- 6.50 => - 7
-6.99 => - 7

## Round half to even

This method is used to break the tie so that no personality can be done on the basis of the negative as well as the positive number for rounding towards anyone from zero. The major motive of this method is to round the value to the nearest even integer for example
6.5 => 7
7.5 => 7
-5.5 => -6
-8.5 => 8

## Round half to odd

This method is quite similar to the method of rounding half to even. It is also used to break the type but in this method the values gets rounded up to the nearest odd integer. For example
6.5 => 7
7.5 => 7
-5.5 => - 5
-6.5 => -7

## Round half away from zero

The working of this method is quite same to its name. In this method, the value do not get partial towards negative or positive numbers.in this method, the major motive is to round the number to the half value towards the next integers that is actually closer to the negative as well as the positive infinity based number. For example
5.5 => 6
-5.5 => -6

## Round half towards zero

There is a lot of similarity between round half away from zero and the round half towards zero method. The main method is to round the number to the value that is closer to the 0.
5.5 => 5
-5.5 => -5

## How to Use the Rounding Calculator?

In order to use the Rounding calculator, you need to:

• Enter the number/decimal in the dialog box
• Select and hit on the �Round� button to get the result.
• The rounded value of the number will appear in the answer section.

## Rounding any whole number

If you are thinking about rounding off any whole number then it is important for you to check that what is the exact location of that number according to the desired rounding? Here in the below section, we are providing an example that can help you in understanding how the number rounding works when you are willing to round any whole number.

• In order to give you the process, here we have used the number 52744 and we will try to round it off to the nearest hundredth.
• When it comes about rounding off to the closest hundred then the particular position will be at the three digits prior to the main decimal point.
• In this number you are required to take the digits 7 to round it to the nearest hundred.
• After taking this digit, you need to choose the number that is right next to it. According to the figure given, the next digit is 4. It is also important for you to check whether the digit is at 10th place and also if it is bigger than 5 or less than 5.
• As we can see that the given digit is less than 5 so it will remain the same. However in case it exceeds 5 then it will be rounded off by increasing 1 to the digit. In this case, the number given right to the seven is less so the rounding off figure will be 52700.

## Rounded Table for Numbers with respect to place

 Rounding Off Place Corresponding Number The number afore and subsequent the decimal Million 1000000 7 Hundred Thousand 100000 6 Ten Thousand 10000 5 Thousand 1000 4 Hundred 100 3 Ten 10 2 Unit 1 1 Tenth 0.1 -1 Hundredth 0.01 -2 Thousandth 0.001 -3 Ten Thousandth 0.0001 -4 Hundred Thousandth 0.00001 -5 Millionth 0.000001 -6

## Rounding to the fractions

In this method, the rounding process of a particular value gets done to the nearest multiple of the fraction that is chosen. For example rounding to the nearest 1/8
15.65 -> 15 = 15.625
This method is considered as so useful in engineering processes where the fractions are used to define the size of the component for example for the bolts, pipe or the nuts.

## Rounding off to the decimal

If you are having any decimal function and you are willing to round it off then you need to follow the process as given below.

• We have chosen the digit as 7.582 and we will round it off to the tenth place.
• While rounding off the number, it is important to remember that the rounding off will be done at the digit given at 10th place. In simple words it is basically one digit prior to the decimal point.
• We also need to pick the digit that is given just after the decimal point. Here the digit is 5.
• Now we need to determine that the number given next 25 is greater than 5 or less than 5.
• According to the figure given, the next digit is 8 that is more than 5. According to the discussion we have above we will exceed it by adding one to it. Finally the rounding digit will be 7.6.

## Rounding to the nearest tenth calculator

When you are willing to round off the figure to the next 10th then you are required to follow the given steps.

• In order to make you understand the process here we have taken the digit as 0.63.
• First of all you are required to identify the digit given at 10th place. The digit is. 6
• Now identify the nearest place value. Hear the nearest place value is 3
• It is important to identify that the digit is less than 5 equals to 5 or more than 5
• According to the figure given, it is less than 5 so the digit will be round down.
• Now after rounding off it to the tenth place, the final round of figure will be 0.6.

## Rounding off to the nearest hundred calculator

First of all, it is important to identify that which digit is given at the hundredth place. Here we are going to take the digit as 0.644.

• Now come at the digit given at the hundred place is 4
• Now it is important to check that the digit given after 4 is less than 5 or greater than 5
• According to the figure given, it is less than 5 hence the figure needs to round down
• Finally, the resultant figure will be 0.64.

## Rounding to the nearest thousand calculator

The process of rounding the figure to the nearest thousandth calculator is quite similar to the hundredth calculator process.

• First of all you didn't need to identify the digit given at the thousandth place. Here we have taken the figure as 0. 1443
• In this figure, 4 is given at the thousandth place
• Again check out the next value that it is more than 5 or less than 5
• According to this figure, the digit is less than 5 that is 3
• Hence it will be round down
• The resultant figure will be 0.144
• Note: In case the figure is more than 5 then the resultant figure will be 0.145.
• Hence these are all the essential details regarding the Rounding calculator. You can easily use it and get the rounding task done.
