**How to Round a Formula with SUM in Excel: 4 Ways**

To demonstrate the methods, weâ€™ll use the following dataset that represents some product prices.

**1. Using ROUND and SUM Functions to Round a Formula in Excel**

First, weâ€™ll do it using the **ROUND **and **SUM **functions. We can apply them in two different ways- sum the values and then round them or round the values first and then find the sum. Both ways will give you approximately the same output.

**1.1. Sum Values Then Round**

First, weâ€™ll learn how to sum the values and then how to round. So, weâ€™ll have to use the **SUM **function first and then the **ROUND **function.

**Steps:**

- Activate
**Cell C11**by clicking it. - Then type the following formula in it-

`=ROUND(SUM(C5:C9),1)`

- Finally, just press the
**ENTER**button to get the output.

**1.2. Round Values Then Sum**

Now, weâ€™ll round the values first and then will sum them. For that, weâ€™ll have to use the **ROUND **function first and then the **SUM **function.

**Steps:**

- In
**Cell C11**, write the following formula-

`=SUM(ROUND(C5:C9,1))`

- Later, just hit the
**ENTER**button to get the result.

And have a look we got the same result as the previous section.

**2. Applying Excel ROUNDUP and SUM Functions to Round a Formula**

Excel **ROUNDUP** function can be used too to round a formula with the **SUM **function. Because the **ROUNDUP **function works pretty similar to the **ROUND **function, just round the value to its nearest upper value. First, weâ€™ll sum the values and then will apply the **ROUNDUP **function.

**Steps:**

- Write the following formula in
**Cell C11**â€“

`=ROUNDUP(SUM(C5:C9),1)`

- Then to get the output, just hit the
**ENTER button**.

**3. Using ROUNDDOWN and SUM Functions to Round a Formula**

Here, weâ€™ll apply the **ROUNDDOWN **and **SUM **functions. The **ROUNDDOWN **function works inversely to the **ROUNDUP **function, it rounds a value to its nearest lower value.

**Steps:**

- Type the following formula in
**Cell C11**â€“

`=ROUNDDOWN(SUM(C5:C9),1)`

- Finally, press the
**ENTER**button.

Have a look, the output is slightly different from the previous outputs because of using the **ROUNDDOWN **function but that is not so significant for a large value.

**4. Manually Sum Values Then Round**

In our last method, weâ€™ll sum the values manually instead of using the **SUM **function and then will round the output using the **ROUND **function.

**Steps:**

- First, type the following formula in
**Cell C11**to sum the values manually-

`=C5+C6+C7+C8+C9`

- Next, press the
**ENTER button**.

- Now to round the output, write the following formula in
**Cell C12**â€“

`=ROUND(C11,1)`

- Hit the
**ENTER**button to finish.
