15 Types of Round Functions in Excel

To explain this article, I have taken the following dataset. It contains some positive and some negative numbers with decimal points. I will use Round functions in Excel to round these numbers. Here, I will show you how you can use all types of Round functions in Excel to round a number.

All Types of Round Functions in Excel


1. Using ROUND Function

The ROUND function is used to round a number to a certain number of digits/decimal places, specified by the user. Syntax of the ROUND function is:

=ROUND(number, num_digits)

Where number is the number at hand you would like to round, and num_digits is the number of digits one wants to round the number by. Both arguments used by the function are required. For any num_digits above 0, the number is then rounded to the decimal places specified by the number of digits. If num_digits is 0 exactly, then the number is rounded to the nearest integer/whole number. If num_digits is less than 0, then the actual number is rounded to the left of the decimal point.

For your better understanding, I will explain 2 different examples of using the ROUND function.


Example-01: Rounding Number to Specified Decimal Place

In this example, I will explain how you can use the ROUND function to round a number to a specified decimal place. Let’s see the steps.

Steps:

  • Firstly, select the cell where you want to round the number. Here, I selected cell C5.
  • Secondly, in cell C5 write the following formula.
=ROUND(B5,1)

2. Use of ROUNDUP Function

The ROUNDUP function is used in cases where you want to round a number up, away from 0. This function is the most used function for rounding up a number of all types of Round functions in Excel. Syntax of the ROUNDUP function is:

=ROUNDUP(number, num_digits)

Where the number is the number at hand that you would like to round up, and the num_digits is the number of digits that you would like to round the number at hand, by. Both arguments used are required for this function. In the case where num_digits is above 0, the number is always rounded up to the decimal places specified. If num_digits is 0 exactly then the number is rounded up to the nearest integer/whole number. If num_digits is less than 0, then the number is rounded up to the left of the decimal point.

For your better understanding, I will show you an example of using the ROUNDUP function here. Let’s see the steps.

The ROUNDDOWN function is used to round a number down towards 0. Syntax of the ROUNDDOWN function is:

=ROUNDDOWN(number, num_digits)

Where the number is the number that you would like to round down, and the num_digits is the number of digits that you would like to round the number at hand by. Both arguments are required for this function. In this case, if the num_digits value is above 0, then the number value is rounded down to the specified number of decimal places.

=CEILING(number, significance)

Where the number is the number that you want to round and significance specifies the multiple to which you want to round up. Both of the arguments are required in this function.

When the number value and the multiple of significance given are the same, no rounding occurs, or if the number is a multiple of the multiple of significance. If both the number specified is negative and the significance is negative then the number value is rounded down away from 0. If the number is negative and the significance is positive, then the value is rounded up towards zero. Among all types of Round functions in Excel, this function is also used for rounding up.

Let’s see a simple example to illustrate the functionality of the CEILING function. For this example, I have taken the following dataset. It contains the Number and the Significance. Here, I will round the number up to the nearest multiple of significance.

  • Secondly, in cell C6 write the following formula.
=TRUNC(B6)

Using TRUNC Function

Here, in the TRUNC function, I selected cell B6 as the number. The formula will remove the fraction from the number in cell B6 and return the integer part.

  • Thirdly, press ENTER to get the result.

Now, I will show you how you can truncate a number from the right side of the decimal point.

  • Firstly, select the cell where you want to truncate the number. Here, I selected cell D6.
  • Secondly, in cell D6 write the following formula.
=TRUNC(B6,1)

Here, in the TRUNC function, I selected cell B6 as the number and 1 as num_digits. The function will truncate the number in cell B6 to the 1 decimal point.

  • Thirdly, press ENTER to get the result.

  • Finally, drag the Fill Handle to copy the formula to other cells like in the previous examples.

Now, I will show you how you can truncate a number from the left side of the decimal point.

  • Firstly, select the cell where you want to truncate the number. Here, I selected cell E6.
  • Secondly, in cell E6 write the following formula.
=TRUNC(B6,-1)

Here, in the TRUNC function, I selected cell B6 as the number and -1 as num_digits. The function will truncate the number in cell B6 from the left side of the decimal point and return the nearest multiple of 10.

  • Thirdly, press ENTER to get the result.

14. Employing ODD Function

The ODD function is used to round up a number to the nearest odd integer. Syntax of the ODD function is:

=ODD(number)

Where number is the number in your hand that you want to round up. The number is a required argument in this function. This function returns a odd number among all types of Round functions in Excel.

Let’s see a simple example of using the ODD function.

Steps:

  • Firstly, select the cell where you want to round the number. Here, I selected cell C6.
  • Secondly, in cell C6 write the following formula.
=ODD(B6)

Employing ODD Function

Here, in the ODD function, I selected cell B6 as the number. The formula will round up the number in cell B6 to the nearest odd integer.

  • Thirdly, press ENTER to get the result.

  • Finally, drag the Fill Handle and copy the formula to the other cells like in the previous examples.


15. Use of EVEN Function

The Even function is used to round a number up to the nearest even integer. It is one of the Round functions in Excel. Syntax of the EVEN function is:

=EVEN(number)

Where number is the number in your hand that you want to round up. The number is a required argument for this function. This function returns an even number among all types of Round functions in Excel.

Let me show you an example of using the EVEN function.

Steps:

Conclusion

To conclude, I tried to explain all types of Round functions in Excel. Excel provides different functions to round numbers, you can select a suitable function depending on your needs, requirements, or industry-dependent specifications. One must remember though that the rounding functions change the actual number value, so when utilized in formulas, it’s the rounded number that is input, and not the original source number. Please feel free to tell us which rounding functions you use in your spreadsheets.
