The quantity argument specifies the quantity that’s to be rounded. The quantity argument is usually a specified worth (for instance, 1234.4321) or a cell reference (equivalent to A2).

The num_digits argument is the variety of digits to which the quantity argument will likely be rounded. The num_digits argument is usually a specified worth or a cell reference to a cell that accommodates the num_digits worth.

A 0 (zero) num_digits argument rounds a complete quantity to the closest integer and rounds a decimal worth to a complete quantity. For instance, the operate =ROUND(1234.4321,0) rounds the quantity to 1234.

A optimistic num_digits argument (the argument is larger than 0) rounds the quantity to the desired variety of decimal locations. A optimistic num_digits argument rounds the quantity to the fitting of the decimal level. For instance, the operate =ROUND(1234.4321,2) rounds the quantity to 1234.43.

A unfavourable num_digits argument (the argument is lower than 0) rounds the quantity to the left of the decimal level. For instance, the operate =ROUND(1234.4321,-2) rounds the quantity to 1200.

When Excel makes use of the ROUND operate to spherical numbers, it follows standard rounding guidelines. For values which might be lower than 5, Excel rounds all the way down to the closest quantity. For values which might be 5 or increased, Excel rounds as much as the closest quantity.
