1. Round to Nearest 50 Cents Using ROUND Function

The ROUND function rounds off a number to the nearest value having a specific number of digits. So, I will use this function to round off prices to the nearest multiple of 50 cents.

  • ROUND(C5*2,0): Rounds off $2.92 to the nearest integer value with no decimal places after the decimal point. So, $2.92 becomes $3.00.
  • ROUND(C5*2,0)/2: Divides $3.00 by 2. So we get $1.50.

So, this is how the ROUND function rounds off numbers to the nearest multiple of 50 cents.
